Apr. 21 - Pasta Alfredo & Salad

It was a craaaazy day - we did a tour of the firehouse with the MOMS Club, had dance class, went to lunch and then Luke had his 2+ hour doctor's appointment. Luckily, my friend Christy offered to let Linds stay with her during the doctor's appointment, which worked out perfectly. She would have never endured the doctor's, and she and Christy painted nails and toenails, ate ice cream, colored pictures and watched Yo Gabba Gabba! She kept talking about how much fun she had all the way up to bedtime...thank you SO much Christy! :-)

We were home around 5:30ish, so we needed something quick and easy for dinner. I ended up throwing together some spaghetti noodles and a homemade alfredo sauce. The recipe is from a diabetic cookbook and not only is it quick to make, it's super easy!

Alfredo Sauce
3 tablespoons margarine/butter
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 cup skim milk
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

  1. Melt butter over low heat.
  2. Once melted, mix in flour over medium heat until smooth.
  3. Add milk and stir until thickened.
  4. Add Parmesan cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Serve immediately.
I like to toss a little oregano on top, and sometimes do grilled shrimp or broccoli on top. Today I was lazy and just served a salad with it.
