This recovery period I'm stuck in has brought many challenges. One of them being that because I have high expectations for myself, I tend to get slightly disappointed when I am unable to meet them.
However. Tonight, I cooked the 13th meal from Pinterest. Lucky number 13.
Behold: Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Alfredo. I made a few adjustments (substituted MimicCreme - unsweetened almond and cashew cream - for fat free half and half, and buckwheat soba noodles instead of plain pasta), and Dan was prepared to lick the pot.
It felt so gourmet and fancy, but was pretty durn easy to prepare. Nothing like a successful dinner to boost the spirits.
PS. At first bite, Judah declared it delicious. As soon as he heard what made the sauce such a gorgeous color, he proceeded to request Alternate Dinner #1.
PPS. If you are intrigued by my incredulous food photography skills and are interested in checking out even more food porn, Pinterest is the place. If you also need an invite, just say the word in the comments section or email me. I am more than happy to oblige.
