I’m sad to report that my Ingredient Challenge date dish never quite happened yesterday. The food processor blade and I had a fight, and the blade won. So, instead of making what were going to be wonderful Whole Wheat Date & Prosciutto Ravioli yesterday, I spent 4 lovely hours in the UNC Emergency Department having my thumb sewn back together!
To make things worse, I went out yesterday morning and bought this food processor just to make this dish! It did a wonderful job with the ravioli dough… but this is as far as I got.
My good friend Will (who is conveniently a Resident at UNC Hospitals) rushed over and off to the ER we went! 4 hours and 5 stitches later, I was back at home and faced with single-handedly cleaning the mess I had made. I found this sign to be a little ironic and mildly irritatiting.
The nice nurse practitioner sent me home with a bunch of gauze and other fun sterile things for my thumb so I can change the dressing and clean my stitches every day for the next 10 days. I can’t say I’m looking forward to that but a least I got a goodie bag from the hospital!
Well, this is about as much typing as my thumb can handle for today so I will end it here! I plan to make my Whole Wheat Date & Prosciutto Ravioli at some point (when I can look at a food processor again and not want to cry) but be sure to check out what the other blog ladies made using dates! Hopefully they had more success with them than I did. Have a great day!
