There’s an intermittent connection all over the Metro lately. Although I stop updating for a while because of my condition, I still am affected because my two daughters are connected with WIFI when they do a research study and search topics for their school assignments. It usually takes them a few hours before they get done. The service provider needs to upgrade not only the connection but also the business phone systems
as it sometimes gets busted and I poorly hear the party at the other end.
My service provider just called up and offered an upgrade of our connection. The customer service offers free router and faster connection. Faster connection comes along an additional $8/month. This extra charge will be added on top of my regular monthly bill. The router is free but I think that the additional charge is not worth considering that I have to pay it in my entire subscription period. I already have an existing router and I can work with my present connection albeit slow, so I declined the offer!
Three pasta posts in a row. I guess pasta is the easiest recipe for us and now becomes a trend to our cravings. My daughters love pasta and wouldn’t? Only vegetarians would say no to pasta.
For recipe today, I’ll be sharing Alfredo Pasta which I think is the simplest using chicken meat. Preparation will take only 5 to 10 minutes.
2 cups cream
1/4 cup butter
salt and pepper
Bring the pasta to boil. It usually takes 11 to 14 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
Heat a saucepan and put a little water before melting the butter to avoid the butter to stick to the pan. Saute garlic in a butter. Put the chicken meat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes. Add garlic and cheese. Stir. Served with parsley and top with cheese.
It’s not always pasta every week. It’s just that we crave for it these days. Easy to crave just as easy to prepare.
Alfredo sauce recipes were known as “al burro” or “with butter” in Rome.
Butter and Parmesan cheese are blended with rich cream.
Today is a lazy day for all of us due to suspension of classes in some cities in metro areas. There is no storm but the southwest monsoon was intensified that brought heavy rains and that also gave us a reason to stay indoor and watch movies that we’ve been longing to see for a long time now. So, today is a movie time day. Among the films lined up to watch are romantic, comedy and drama. We are now lazy lying in the couch with popcorn ready to pop in a microwave. Good thing before even the storm came, we already have replenished supplies and have lots of goodies and easy to bite food.
I love the old comedy drama Garden State in 2004. It is a comedy drama starring Zach Braff with Natalie Portman. It was taken in New Jersey as the primary location. I found the scene romantic that was taken like it was in a huge electric fireplace. Andrew (Braff) looks very uncomfortable in that scene. I wonder about the next part but it just gave me a different feeling. Most movies with this setting really add a little spice, I mean another kind of mood and you definitely will feel like you’re into the actual situation.
I’m glad that preparing tomato based sauce isn’t hard for my children to take. They don’t like spaghetti with sweet style sauce and would request to cook even just tuna with a little tomato sauce. Just sprinkle a good cheese and it’s done for them.
I even tried tomato dice with basil and oregano and they liked it.
Here’s my simple recipe of my Tomato Basil Pene Pasta.
It’s so easy just like how I prepare other pasta.
Cook the pasta in a large bowl about 11 to 14 minutes. Drain. Set aside.
Saute garlic, onion, tomato diced, basil, oregano flavor and mushroom. Season with salt and pepper according to your taste. Put the pasta and sprinkle with cheese and its good to go! Simple right?
The London Olympic 2012 officially launches today. It was indeed a successful opening where thousands of performers showed their best in the opening ceremony. Tourism, as expected, significantly boost London. Many people grabbed the chance to open a store and sell souvenir items with Olympic logo. It surely is a big bang with those items selling like hot cakes. A ring tattoo is also a trend to the tourists who travel to the city to watch the game. If pandora beads are included in the the souvenir items, I bet that even the Olympiads would would get one for themselves. It’s the greatest sports show on Earth right? Let’s all watch the game and show our support by giving them a big cheer!
