Dinner- Thursday, January 5th, 2012

In order to immerse myself in the community, I'll take up the standard of the daily "what's for dinner?" thread for today, Jan. 5th.

I recently posted a tragic tale of woe in Culinaryland, and was held aloft by better people. Because of that, I feel a little renewed, and so can press on.

For tonight's dinner, I plan to continue working on, or finally succeed in making a cream sauce..., or in today's case, an alfredo-like sauce. I've tried this sort of thing before, and the sauce broke, but I believe it is because I let the cream boil, or become too hot, or any of several other things.

Today, it is simple: butter-melted, roasted garlic-added, salt, pepper, add cream and stir. While stirring, add sautee'd mushrooms, onions, spinach, leftover chicken; serve over noodles.

Simple, neh? I think the problems I've had before have stemmed from doing too much, or too high heat and feel successful already, knowing a little more than yesterday, even.

Fortunately, every one in the family (world?) likes pasta.

Thank you.

I am by myself tonight and have an icky digestive system, so I will be heating up some Beef Veg soup I made yesterday. Might sneak a cold beer in there just to make it seem like a party...
