Today a very special person has a birthday. 29 years ago my handsome cowboy was brought into this world. Words will never be enough to express my love and adoration for this God fearing man. We happened into each others lives simply by accident and I could not be more grateful for him. He has shown me love in ways I never thought possible. Even thought he's 1200 miles away I know he loves me with every ounce of his being. And I feel the exact same way. We have big plans for our future together and I am so excited about them. Hopefully this time next week he'll be getting ready to make his trek to Virginia! Happy birthday my handsome cowboy

It's been one of those weeks. Since last Wednesday to be exact. I've been on a night shift schedule since then, working every other night and it's made for one long ass week. On top of that, my main squeeze has his birthday tomorrow and I can't be there to celebrate with him which breaks my heart. So tonight I wanted major comfort food. And this fits the bill perfectly. This is one of those meals you should only eat about once a month because even looking at it will harden your arteries.
But it is so. damn. good. Comfort food at its best. Well, for me anyways. I made Ree's version and it's spot on boys and girls. Best Alfredo sauce I have ever made. I used salted butter and just seasoned it with some black pepper, Cajun seasoning and a little garlic power. Fresh sauteed garlic would be good too but it's delicious enough as is. Loosen your belts cause if you're anything like me when it comes to good pasta sauce, you'll be licking your bowl and the saucepan clean.
I grilled some chicken on my George Foreman and added some Cajun seasoning to it for a little kick. Do what you want. It'll be good no matter how you do it.
How to make said recipe:
1 cup heavy cream
1 stick of butter (I used salted and didn't season the sauce with salt)
Salt and pepper to taste
Cajun seasoning and garlic powder to taste (if you wish)
Fettuccine (I cooked a 12 ounce box)
2 cups Parmesan cheese (you can get fancy and use fresh. I used a mix of Italian shredded cheese)
Now Ree pours her cream/butter mixture over the cheese but I throw it in after the butter has melted. Do what you please. I don't know how much of a difference it makes.
