I’ve been gone for the past week due to the passing of my furry friend – Onyx Marie. She was a part of our family for 16 years and due to age and health matters had to be put down Super Bowl Sunday. Although I knew it was the right thing to do it all hit me pretty bad and I just didn’t want to do much of anything but cry, eat, and cry some more. She will be greatly missed but we know she is at peace. I did try out two new recipes this week for despite my depressed feelings I had to function and feed everyone.
Homemade Alfredo Penne With Peas and Carrots – So I attempted to make my own alfredo sauce based on a few recipes I noticed online…butter, heavy cream, shredded romano, shredded parmesan, salt/pepper. Now the heavy cream was kind of thick so I wonder if that had part of the cause of it not being creamy… else I’m thinking I put to much cheese.. (Yeah I really didn’t want to cook so I didn’t feel like measuring anything). It tasted great just thought it would be like what I see in a jar 🙂
Valentines Party – finally took place earlier today and for the most part it was a success. I didn’t dare attempt to make the heart shaped fruit kabobs but just used the chunks that our lovely grocery cut 🙂 I did make the heart-shaped sprinkled cookies though.. And the kids liked their mailboxes and had fun making valentines. I totally forgot to get a picture of the mailboxes all lined up BUT will try to remember to take a picture of the girls…
We a few new recipes to try this upcoming week which include – homemade egg rolls, taco pot pies, greek meatballs with orzo, and salmon/bok choy. What are you cooking?
