Food....is a major priority at my house. We think about it too much. We talk about it. We watch shows about it. Surprisingly, none of us has hit 300 lbs yet.
My point here is that this is gonna be a food related entry. LOL
We love alfredo sauce here. Alot. It's one of the few things that Adrian will eat without even blinking, complaining, or chewing. (Just kidding about the chewing part. He does chew his food. Most of the time.) Anyway, I've gone through the plethora of jarred alfredo sauces. Yes, I could probably make my own, but eh..... sometimes a mom just wants to open a jar and call it food without too much effort, you know?! Most of the jarred sauces, while good, leave a bit to be desired. They're good, but there's not that "wow.....this is really good.' Then, a week ago, we were over at my sister in law's house helping her cut down some tree limbs. She made us dinner. Guess what it was. Go ahead....you'll never guess. Okay, maybe you will. Chicken Alfredo. And...it was really good. So, I said 'Okay, which brand do you buy?!" ('cause I know she isn't making it from scratch, either)..... She lifted up a jar of Ragu. The same brand I buy. I said 'Uhhhhhhhh okayyyy....and what else do you put in it then?!' She told me. and I was like 'Seriously? SERIOUSLY!?!?' but it was.....really good. Y'all wanna know, don't you. I know you do. Are you ready? She said "Half of a block of Velveeta Queso Blanco with jalapenos, and some butter and milk." Velveeta? The hell? In Alfredo sauce?! Now, I don't know if it's available everywhere, but if it is, try it. You'll be shocked at how good it is.
Also, while I'm at it......I'm making pork chops for dinner. This potato casserole is SO good with it. If you make it, tell me how you liked it.
