Ravioli With a Light Creamy Sauce

I can only speak for myself when I say that motherhood can make you feel like you are constantly jumping through hoops of fire. My day starts at 6:30 am, and I a moving nonstop until 8:30 pm. Your life can literally feel like it will blow up in flames when you have 3 kids that like to play every sport known to man, a husband that travels and you also work. Sometimes I find a quiet spot in my house and just stare at the wall. I don’t think I even blink. I’m too tired to blink. 

But guess what everyone still has to eat. They train like athletes (because they are) So they have to eat like an athlete. Which means I live at the grocery store!!!

NO… really I do. I buy 2 gallons of milk and 2 cartons of eggs every time I go to the grocery store. My 6’3 and 210-pound son can drink half a gallon a day. Somehow that makes me proud and want to cry at the same time. During football season his appetite doubles.

I am constantly thinking of meals to feed this human tank and his athletic siblings. Sometimes I just want to throw oatmeal on the table for dinner and then collapse on the floor. But I can’t do that so, I depend on quick go-to meals.

I would love to spend 2 hours a day in the kitchen with my apron on, a fresh coat of makeup, and clean hair in an elegant French roll. Oh and don’t forget high heel shoes and while we are at it……make them red bottoms. But that is not what you will find when enter my kitchen. I may or may not have showered, hair tied in a ponytail and red watery eyes with a dazed and delusional look in my eyes.

So if you can relate to me then follow this recipe below, watch the video and get to cooking!
