So, back to dinner. Blake ordered roasted duck (typical) and it was awesome! I ordered butternut squash ravioli, and it was similarly amazing. It was served in a cream sauce with big shavings of salty parmesan cheese, caramelized onions, and what (at first) looked like craisins sprinkled over top. Luckily, they were NOT craisins, but actually dried cherries -- mmmmm. The flavor of the cherries worked well with the butternut/cream/parm/caramel-onion goodness. I quite enjoyed it.
So, this morning I ran across a recipe on Sweet Paul with the same flavor idea. And a pretty picture to go with:

And do share... what are you eating this weekend?
