Weekend Update

I didn't set the alarm Friday night. With my random sleep patterns, I woke up way to late Saturday morning. So, forget the Blog, I hit the shower. I took a super quick one (head, pits, crotch and rear end) I made it to my 9:00 a.m. haircut at 9:02.

From there, I went to Kroger's and bought a bunch of groceries. It had started snowing by then, so I skipped the Feed Store (birdseed) and the gas station (gas). I left the truck outside to unload it. By the time I emptied it and pulled it inside, it had switched to rain.

I made an interesting supper on Saturday: Fettuccine Alfredo with Bacon. I put the pasta in my pasta pot and while it was cooking I cooked three slices of bacon that I had chopped into lardons. I cooked it until crisp then removed the bacon from the pan, reserving the drippings. I added a teaspoon of minced garlic  and cooked that for a minute (stirring constantly). The I covered it with one tablespoon of A/P flour and cooked it for about 30 seconds (again stirring constantly). I slowly added one cup of milk, still stirring. I cooked that about two minutes until it was bubbling and slightly thick.

I reduced the heat to low and gradually added 2/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese. When it had melted, I stirred in some salt and added in the pasta. I ended up adding about a 1/4 cup of my reserved pasta water to thin it out some. I sprinkled the top with the bacon, some Italian parsley and black pepper.

It was very good. I was going to roast a chicken on Sunday, but ended up eating the pasta again  instead.

I slept in again on Sunday. It was foggy outside when I did get up, so I decided to stay inside.

I cleaned the house and did the weekend wash (it's so nice to have my washer working again!)

I tried taking a nap Sunday afternoon but the phone woke me up. So, I talked with Melissa instead.

I watched some taped TV shows Sunday night and went to bed after watching the news at 11:00 p.m.
