Happy Tuesday! Oh, and happy September too! :-) I'm not a mom...but I have to say that I'm secretly a little happy to see all the kids going back to school. It's totally selfish, but I worry about some of the neighborhood kids who seem to be out WAY after dark, in dark clothes and RUNNING in front of cars. I don't want to be the one that doesn't stop quick enough. :-( If they're back at school, they need to go to bed early-ish, right?!
Thanks to everyone that has participated in Tuesdays at the Table. I love cooking for others and am thrilled when you respond to the recipes that I share and/or share one of your own!
This week I'm sharing a recipe that my uncle taught me as a pre-teen. He was a chef for a while before becoming a corrections officer and has some fabulous recipes that I've stolen through the years! (Sorry for the less than gorgeous picture. I thought I got a good one...then by the time I realized I didn't, dinner was over and my subject matter disappeared!)
Zucchini and Mushroom Fettucini Alfredo
1 box (a pound) of fettucini
1 pint heavy (or whipping) cream
1/2 cup butter
1 tsp. minced garlic
