Ok, so my day off didn't go exactly as planned...I didn't work on the blog, I didn't go to Trader Joe's, and I didn't meet Ryan for lunch. Turns out, we got 7 inches of snow on Sunday evening/Monday morning so Ryan urged me to stay home and not trek across the cities to meet him or to trek further north to TJ's. So, instead of spending a couple hours driving, I was a cleaning machine. I even cleaned the dust from the ceiling fan!
I also worked on my never-ending recipe project of transferring recipes from magazines onto my formatted recipe cards. I think I got rid of over 15 magazines - woo hoo, only like 100 more to go!
Here's one recipe book that I use a lot...VwaV. Ryan and I have been trying to use up ingredients from our cupboards and freezer, so Fettuccini Alfreda fit right in.
We really liked this. We used our old food processor (should have used the new one), so the sauce was a bit chunky, but I liked the bites of onion. I also really like nutritional yeast, so it made for a great cheesy sauce. We wished we had some great steamed veggies to serve with the pasta, but ended up adding some spinach later.
