Lobster Ravioli & Fig Salad


Lobster Ravioli from Trader Joe's with Pinenuts and Butter Sauce
Fig, Prosciutto and Arugula Salad

Our friends Chris & Penny were in Italy this summer, and brought back this lovely balsamic vinegar straight from the source -- Modena, that is. It was absolutely delicious drizzled over this salad.

By the way, holy hiatus! To say I have been uninspired in the kitchen is quite the understatement. I don't think we ate one meal before 8:30 pm during the Spring thanks to a busy soccer and baseball schedule. Quick and easy was the name of the game. And this Summer has been incredible! Our house has been filled with guests, fun and of course food. Not enough time to think about documenting it, clearly, but too much food! After losing 15 pounds over the winter, I've gained 10 back over the past couple months -- I need to get back on track. Such a bummer. Honestly, I don't really worry about the numbers, but there comes a point when enough is enough. Bottom line though, it's not easy. This meal certainly didn't help the issue, but it sure was delicious.
