Behold!

Here it is! With a picture just to show off, one dinner course of Chicken Pasta Alfredo. Just boil up a pot of pasta and mix up the Alfredo sauce on the stove:

Melt 2 T Butter. Add 1 Cup of cream and gently stir for 5 mins or so. Heat well without boiling. Whisk in 3/4 Cup of Cheddar Cheese and about 1/4 Cup of stronger cheese, like Parmesan or Emmental until melted. Add pepper and parsley to taste.














A good friend pointed out tonight that if this is the quest for a model of financially prudent food purchasing, then the fact that butter, cream and cheese are three of the most expensive foods in the supermarket right now might actually make this a luxury dish. I guess I consider that since we've made two dinners and two lunches out of one chicken, that the money we've saved by buying less meat leaves a little extra to go into making the leftovers go down that much more pleasantly.

Nyum.

And here's Isaac, helping with the grinder photoshoot. Very helpful!

Looks like your little grinder is having a great time.

Mmmmm... Have come here from Morg, and am glad I did.
Yoghurt can often be used as a substitute for cream in pasta dishes, home made yoghurt = very economical.

we'll have to give that a go - we actually have yoghurt brewing as we speak!
