Here’s the alfredo sauce..

Here’s the alfredo sauce I mentioned in the last post:

1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 tbsp flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until golden brown.

In a small saucepan, stir together milk, chicken broth, flour, salt and pepper over low heat until smooth and thick. Stir into garlic. Continue to cook over medium low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thick. Stir in parmesan cheese. Serves 4.

Since writing this recipe (a whopping .2 seconds ago) I have decided to make this a food related post. Because I have hips. And thighs. And an appetite like a horse.

I came across the following post from theKitchn this morning: they asked if anyone believed in second breakfasts. I thought to myself “uhh doesn’t everyone have second breakfast?” I more often refer to it as ‘brack’ (breakfast snack)
Second Breakfast: Hobbits Need it. Do you?
I make sure to keep my bracks healthy but filling. Focusing primarily on the filling part, because everyone knows those mid morning hours seems to creep on and lunch feels like it will never come.

Ok, I changed my mind. This post won’t be entirely about food.

Let’s talk about me.

Current me: I have no job. I have barely any of my clothes (could only bring what would fit in the car). I threw out most all of my decorations, furniture, accessories, i.e.: BELONGINGS. I am missing my friends like whoa. Missing my routine. Missing teaching classes at the Y. Gaining weight. Not putting on makeup. Not doing my hair. Not sleeping.

I knew the transition would be hard, but WOOF.

There are positives:
I am with Tyler
I am more experimental with my cooking
I am trying classes at the gym I wouldn’t normally take
I’m reading books (..again. These are fun!)
I get more Layla time

Wow, that bit right there got pretty deep. I didn’t want to post it or anything, but putting it all down into words makes me feel better.

Now on to lighter topics:
Snooki is pregnant. HAHAHAHA
Colton on Survivor needs to go.
I like blogging
I wish I remembered to bring more sweat pants
a) scary that I actually tried to buy the book
b) even scarier that I admitted to it
c) where the heck can I buy it so I can read it on my iPhone under the covers at night?

Anyone else care to vent? I’d like to hear other people’s woes besides my own 🙂
