Saucy Ravioli

I was late getting home but My Beloved had, blessedly, stopped at the farmer's market and found that Home Maid was there selling lobster ravioli. Being the thoughtful and hungry man that he is, he purchased a box of them and carried them home in triumph.

Lobster in the middle of the week and for no special reason. Is it any wonder that I'm nuts about this guy?

We shelled some fresh peas, popping pods together while Cora dashed around snapping up the wayward few. I made a quick and simple sauce of Greek yogurt thinned with a splash of light cream and gently warmed it, infusing it with fresh lemon thyme from the pot garden outside the front door. In less time than it takes to tell, we sat down to a sumptuous dinner of plump raviolis gently sparked with the tangy/creamy/lemony flavorful sauce.

Have you thought about cloning Buzz for the rest of us?

Chilebrown, he didn't mention Narsai. :-) Malfatti, huh? Sounds intriguing.

Kailyn, all the girls (and some guys) ask me that.

Morgan, all I can say is, "hed-on, baby!" Life is good.

Cookiecrumb, guess what! I was thinking "what would Cookiecrumb do for a creamy sauce but not made with all that fatty stuff?" and that's how I came up with this one. No kidding. You inspire me.
