Creativity with Ravioli

At the supermarket, a package of industrially produced food caught my eye : ravioli with Gorgonzola and walnuts.  Hmm, my hand almost reached out but my head said “I could make that”.  So all I bought was some Gorgonzola.

I reflected for a while about what kind of sauce would best accompany this dish.  Not tomato, not just butter.  I decided to use Waldorf salad as my inspiration and cooked some apples down to applesauce, then added some celery, a small shallot, salt and the seeds from one pod of cardamom.  I did not let the celery cook too long as I wanted a crunchy element.

I shelled and finely chopped ½ cup walnuts which came to about 50 grams and blended them with the 150g package of Gorgonzola.

My usual pasta, one egg per person, as much flour as it will take.

 

I had extra filling which I put aside for another day.

 

At the last minute, I added two large dollops of crème fraîche and some pepper to the sauce.

Snow Drops 2019

These seemed to have popped into existence 15 minutes ago.  They must have been there previously but I did not see them until now.

I find this most amazing.

Le Rustique Series

Now that I have done a second work using the paper that comes with a Coulommiers cheese, I think it may become a series.  The first is the tablecloth.

Following is a translation of part of the reply to this comment.  Translation of the poster at the end.

 

…”Your poster, over which flies a large white bird, exalts immaterial forces, despised by our age of heavy materialism, forgotten interior forces that we must awaken in order to rejoin the Father’s Power (RA 12/4), which are love, forgiveness, peace, the heart’s intelligence free from all prejudice, in the background a sun rising over humanity’s tempest, these blue-gray waves that have been trying to drown our inner powers for centuries.  This poster evokes for me the resurrection of love and absolute freedom so finely exalted by the Sermon on the Mount and that the Nicene Council replaced with the invention of the trinity—a god with three heads (RA 23/7)—and redemption by the cross, woolly myths no more menacing for Constantine’s imperial domination than Santa Clauses or Olympian fairies, while the activities of love, forgiveness, non-judgment, liberty, would have given the basic citizens a superior power since it would enable reaching the Power of the Most High.

From that point were sent to the desert or behind monastery walls, which were in fact prisons, those who kept up within themselves those powers, the image and likeness of the Creator (Genesis 1/26).  As for us, the Father brings us out of the virtual desert or monasteries of faith, He causes us to emerge like spume from the tempest blown unceasingly on humanity by the powers in place so as to better dominate it.  We cause to spring forth this impalpable treasure of love and absolute liberty like a sword and it is the Father’s Arm that lifts it (RA 35/14) over the world.”

 

Poster: Return of Good Sanctity Power Penitence and Light

Happy New Year 2019

Love

Forgiveness Peace

Intelligence of the heart

Free from all prejudice

 

The rising of a dawn over a new humanity is the goal of penitence, action of changing one’s life (RA 30/11) and the world to Good. The truth is the world must change (RA 28/7).
