BAD blogger - I forgot to take pictures when we ATE once we got home! Oh, man - we got 3 kinds of ravioli to die for plus 2 quarts of sauce, some kind of unpronouncable bread (they had samples :~) that you soak in olive oil & top with some stuff we bought, asiago artichoke spread (groan), olives, fresh mozzarella (probably my favorite cheese), italian sausages both hot & mild, etc.

Been way too long since we've had our Saturday date day. Hubby dearest got a hankering to make pasta so set out into cyberspace to find an Italian market. Off to Livonia! Being the geographically-challenged woman that I am I had not a clue where it is/how long it would take to get there. More later on that...
(They had me at the "Fresh Baked Bread" sign on the awning, lol :~)
This is part of a row of cases of frozen homemade stuffed pastas. Shown here:
Homemade Gnocchi, Italian Chicken Ravioli, Florentine Pesto Ravioli,
Italian Sausage & Broccolini Ravioli, Italian Sausage Baci,
Veal & Porcini Mushroom Baci, Ham & Porcini Blend Ravioli,
Roasted Butternut Squash Ravioli, Portobello Mushroom Giant Ravioli... oh, my!
Can you believe that this aisle runs from front to back of the entire building?
And I couldn't find alphabet pasta for Lincoln...
We managed to find a FEW things to take home, ahem!
And within our window of opportunity, an unplanned stop on the way home.
As I said, I didn't know where we were headed until after we were en route. When I realized that we were going past Novi I immediately thought, Do we have time to stop at Archivers? I never did get there in May when I was down there for the MegaMeet or when my kindred spirit came for a visit this summer - she got sick & we couldn't go. Time allowed! My knight in shining armor does it again without even trying - love ya, honey! xo
