After a long day, there’s nothing like taking a nice, relaxing walk with the doggles:
I like the closeup even better:
Today was a little chilly, but still a nice day for a walk. I went with the side-pony today so that I could wear a hat.
Once home, I decided to make dish that I’d been dreaming about for days: fettuccine Alfredo. No, not that huge plate of heavy pasta — this:
I confess, I ate a lot of regular fettuccine Alfredo and other similar diner foods growing up. We took a lot of car trips, and whenever we stopped at diners, I always got the huge plate of creamy pasta. Thank goodness I know better now.
I still love cheesy pasta, so I set out to make a healthier version of my once-favorite pasta dish. It involved roasted tomatoes, Brussels sprouts, and garlic.
Have you ever seen one of these? It’s a kumato:
Apparently, it’s some kind of brownish-red European tomato. Pretty sweet-tasting for winter.
The verdict on the Alfredo à la THIH? Pretty good, although not perfect. It still needs something else, like nutmeg or more cornstarch. I’ll post the recipe once I’ve perfected it. I WILL tell you that the recipe involved low-fat sour cream, Greek yogurt, and Parmesan cheese.
As a final note, Peter has been complaining about how I only put pictures of my dog on the blog and not his dog. Well, here she is in all her beauty!
