Alfredo di Lelio owned and operated a small restaurant in Rome in 1914. He created a special light dish for his pregnant wife when she could not tolerate heavy tomato sauces. The original Alfredo was egg fettuccine with butter and parmigiano cheese. Mary Pickford and Douglas Fairbanks often stopped into his establishment which in turn attracted other Hollywood actors and the dish was talked about and recreated in America with the addition of heavy cream.
Tonight was a hectic night as we hurried to get dinner on the table before Camille's dance. This is fast and easy to make... and the kids like it. They were having fun slurping the noodles! By having dinner before dance we were able to have a family night as well. We're going to use the Jasper's idea and attempt to "build a firm family foundation". We spent about a half hour sifting through legos and the goal is to fill the jar with the legos and once it's full we can have a fun family party. The catch is... we can only put legos into the jar when we see acts of kindness. I was at my wit's end with the name calling and fighting, so I thought this was worth a try.
