Sausage Alfredo

Long time no blog!  I am still here.  I haven’t been blogging because my computer crashed and I did not go out and buy a new computer for over a year.  I couldn’t decide if I wanted a laptop or a desktop.  I finally decided to get another laptop.  I like the portability of it.  Since I am back online I will be blogging more often now.  I also decided to give the blog a new look and changed the format.  I like the new simple look that it has.

Now that we are empty nesters my cooking has changed a lot.  I no longer cook large amounts of food.  I generally cook recipes that are freezable and quick.  If a recipe says it serves 4 people, I will serve half and freeze the other half.  This method has helped with portions and stocked my freezer for more busier nights.  I have been getting into dehydrating, canning and making my own quick mixes in order to make things easier too.  Below is a good quick skillet meal that we both like and is one of the recipes I go to when I have to get something on the table fast.  It is freezable and can be warmed up in the microwave.  I serve this with a nice big dinner salad.
