We had a fairly quiet weekend and that is always nice. St Patrick's Day passed pretty uneventfully this year, with no green beer or parades. We watched a lot of basketball, but our green and white school colors did not bring much luck to MSU in the Big 10 Tournament.
Friday night was Bunco night for me. Since I needed to bring a meatless appetizer, I made my yummy baked ravioli. The recipe can be found here, but I used ricotta and spinach ravioli this time. There are so many great flavors of fresh ravioli at the grocery store - the possibilities are endless. I won the pretty dish towel on the right by rolling a bunco. You wouldn't believe how we fight for these towels, stealing them from each other, as we roll more buncos throughout the night. All in good fun of course :-)
Cooper and I took a few long walks. There is fresh snow, but I spotted buds on some trees and the light and the air are starting to look and feel like spring. Cooper doesn't care one way or the other; she is just happy to walk and explore.
A note on Google Reader
I switched my reader of choice to bloglovin' and it was so easy. Really just 2 steps. Sign up and then press the import blogs I follow button. I do love the format and how easy it is to click over to the main blog page, if you choose. Since I was never a fan of Google Reader, this is an improvement to me. I have added the bloglovin' button to my sidebar, if you would like to add my blog manually, when you are ready to make a switch. And, as always, you can follow my blog by email or twitter. Also, there seems to be some confusion about Google Friend Connect. It is staying and you will still have those blogs you follow via GFC on your blogger dashboard, which I use a lot. Here is a very good blog post about the situation.
