Yummy Recipe!

Here is a really good recipe that I made for dinner tonight:

Light Alfredo Sauce
-1 cup cream cheese
-2 cups 0-2% milk
-1 cup parmesean cheese
-5 cloves garlic
-1.5 tsp. pepper
-1 tsp. salt
-5 tbs. dried parsley or1 cup fresh parsley
Combine the first 6 ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a sauce pan (over medium heat), add the parsley. Cook for about 10 minutes. Pour over your favorite pasta and toss. (I used 1 lb of pasta, but the sauce is super heavy. Probably could use over 2 pounds of pasta and be ok)

We all got it!

Well, we all got the flu. Thankfully, it was pretty minor. Chase had a minor case. Mine was a little worse, but thanks to my wonderful husband and my mom I was able to survive. After about 24 hours on the couch and a good night sleep, it seems to have left! Chase and I both had the flu shot. So much for that working :(

On a side note, Chase ran some errands with Abe last night. As he was getting in the car seat he said, "Daddy, I am a smart cookie." Haha! He has heard us call him that before, and he is now repeating it. Abe thought that was hilarious!

Hope everyone is having fun decorating and getting ready for Christmas :)

More Chase-isms

"Mama, I am sick. I need glue on my tummy."

"Mama, you pretty."


The flu has found our house. :( Abe is home sick with a really nasty flu. Let's hope that Chase and I will stay well. It would be a really bad time for us all to be sick.
