THOUGHTS: My father had an aunt that was from the old country, Italy. He so loved her ravioli and every time he would visit her, he would beg her to make her famous chicken ravioli. Well, one time when he did this (still just a small child of maybe 6), she told him he was now old enough to go out and kill the chickens and she would make him chicken ravioli. She told him to just grab the chicken by the head, put it over his head and swing his arm and this would snap the chicken’s neck. Well, I believe I mentioned before that my father was a very large man, he went out back and got himself a chicken and did just what she said only he spun the chicken round and round until its body flew off. Thinking this is what his aunt meant by breaking its neck, he repeated it again with another chicken. Then went off into the field to find the chickens he had killed. They actually flew pretty far due to his great strength in a little boy, but he was happy when he found them both and returned them to his aunt with anticipation of the coming ravioli. He went outside to play for the day while the meal was made. When it came time to sit down and enjoy the meal, his aunt asked him what he had done to those poor chickens. She said they were not fit to eat as they were black and blue all over.... once again, a story the family has loved for years.....
