Hump Day Ramblings & a Recipe!

Nothing too crazy going on this week, which is completely fine by me!

~I picked up our local grocery ads for the coming week yesterday & I'm already excited about my shopping trips! Lots of free, or practically free groceries & household items...I think I might have to make a special trip tomorrow night just to take advantage of all the cheap finds!

~Tonight's menu features one of my favorite dishes...Homemade Chicken Alfredo. Ok, so totally not for the calorie conscious, but OH SO GOOD! I've got to admit, it's probably my favorite alfredo sauce...even most restaurants can't touch it! It's so good, I must share it!

Cook up your favorite pasta & some chicken, however you like it. The sauce, oh the sauce!

3 tblsp butter
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup Parmesan Reggiano cheese
1/4 cup pasta water (from your pasta you just cooked)
Salt & Pepper to taste

Melt butter in a saucepan, stir in heavy cream & parmesan cheese. Allow to melt & fully combine. Add pasta water as needed to keep sauce from becoming too thick ( I almost always add the entire 1/4 cup). Add salt & pepper to taste. Pour over noodles & chicken. Serve with crunchy, buttery French bread!

Is it time for dinner yet?

~The temperature is supposed to reach the mid-50s on Friday! Wow, it's gonna feel like Spring! Too bad the temps take are forecast to take a nose-dive the middle of next week...

~My birthday is in T-minus 10 days! 10 days people! Yes, I'm one of those people who's crazy about my birthday!

~My new NookColor has been practically attached to my hip, I seriously think I've read 6 books since Christmas and I've started on my 7th! Love it!

~Valentine's Day is coming up so fast...I MUST decide what I'm buying Hubby! We always keep our gifts to a conservative budget, and I'm seriously struggling with Valentine's Day ideas! Any super fabulous, unique suggestions?

~Randomness is all I've got this week...
