Homemade chicken artichoke alfredo. Made with whole wheat noodles (to offset all the cheese ). I cooked the chicken, then sauteed some artichoke. In a separate saucepan I made homemade alfredo, using fresh parm cheese, whipping cream, and some of this-and-that (seasonings, etc.). Put the drained noodles in the bowl, topped with chicken and artichoke mixture, then covered with the alfredo sauce and some fresh basil from the garden. Absolutely amazing!!!!
I’ve been sporting a hand-me-down Army duffel bag to lug things to the gym. But when I was in Austin I snagged a precious duffel bag from Sam Moon (remember that day when I went shopping and saw all the tacky UT stuff? I actually got something good from there!)
Now I use it and my also new-ish CapTexTri water bottle (still so proud!) And look how cute – the bag is lined with pink! Today I totally matched it, as I was wearing a pink shirt, black & pink pants, AND black & pink shoes. More matchy-matchy than normal, but it was just while I was at the gym before I changed into “real” clothes!
Something Borrowed & Blue:
My “borrowed” thing is also blue, so I’m making it count twice! A friend of mine just graduated and gave me her graduation gown so I won’t have to buy one! Those things are surprisingly expensive (in the $100s) for being hideous scraps of fabric. Here it is. I would have modeled it for you, but I feel like that “jinxes” it somehow, so I couldn’t bring myself to do it!
Check out the tag:
That’s right…I’m gonna be a doctor. Quick – hide your children!
And now I’m off to whip up some dinner for tonight! Been busy workin workin workin’ it up, but it feels great to officially be back in the swing of things at the office!
Have you ever had to buy a graduation gown? How much did it cost?
Did/will you do the whole “something old, new, borrowed, blue” for your wedding? I didn’t really care about it, but my whole family felt so strongly about it that I ended up with something in each category…the “borrowed’” was a last-minute pearl necklace which was gorgeous!
