Mix flour and eggs until elastic and can be rolled. Roll dough on floured surface until quite thin. Cut into two to 3 inch squares depending on the size you like but 1 tablespoon of meat mixture in center of dough and fold over. Press the edges with a fork to seal good. Have a kettle of salted boiling water and drop Ravioli squares into the boiling water. Cook 5 minutes, then drain and cover with cheese and or spaghetti sauce or both.

How are your first aid kit coming along?
We got up to snow, sleet and ice. Thank cleared off after a few hours and did some melting but now everything is frozen hard as a rock and it is a real adventure even going up to the chicken coop. 
Dave had to fill the coop grain barrels this morning and took the 50 pounds bags up on a plastic sled.  Took him a couple of trips.
He put in for a day off for today and worked on our taxes, he has to take a day off here and there or he loses those vacation days.  He is in town tonight for meetings.
I have just been knitting socks this week.
