Cajun Alfredo is the Easiest, best Weekday Meal
It’s been a little less than a week since I’ve gotten to Surlingham.
Braedon has been severely sick this week, so I haven’t been able to really do anything other than take care of him.
Today I’m going to see my best friend outside of London. I am so excited! I haven’t seen her in over a year!
Gareth and I just got back from a pub that was built in the 1700s! Wait for Friday to hear more about it!
I feel weird not promoting the blog very much this week and my readership has gone down a lot, but oh well, everyone needs a break, right?
Since everyone needs a break I decided to share with you guys my favorite recipe ever.
The first time that I ever had anything like this I was visiting a cajun restaurant in Waco.
I was probably 17 and from that moment, I decided that food was what I really wanted to do. Not law, not speech, not being a doctor, not anything that I had ever said that I wanted to be.
I wanted to do food.
Over the years I have really perfected it, but it is still the same cheesy goodness that it always has been.
