The Dude of Food presents- Alfredo

 

 

alfredo p3

 

So when I craved pasta with alfredo sauce I just took a half pound of bacon and pan fried it. After draining the pan I added some onions and finely chopped garlic. Fresh broccoli was added and then the frozen peas. Later I added a jar of alfredo and a small container of another brand of alfredo sauce and some milk. Add a dash of salt, some pepper, some basil or mint or whatever you like and bring to a simmer.

Add penne noodles and enjoy.

Top with cheese as preferred.

Vegetable pasta. Spaghetti squash. Miss Paris!

img71o

From what I understand, you can purchase a thing that you stick vegetables in and when you turn the handle it magically turns the veggies into, voila!, spaghetti!

Right now the dude is sitting down with coffee at home, pretending it’s a pint of 1812 served to me by Miss Paris in the amber room overlooking the river, imagining a zucchini pasta with assorted mushrooms smothered in a heavy french cabernet based sauce served with a side of warmed buttery green beans and a couple of poached eggs on toast is about to arrive next.

See what happens if you buy one of these Paderno Spiralizer from Williams-Sonoma.

the Dude of Food gets blessed. 2 yolks – no jokes

Is it the year of the chicken or what?

 Don’t know what they are feeding these chickens but my luck seems to be changing in 2015.  The first egg i cracked revealed 2 yolks inside!  It happened to me at the sushi bar with a double yolked quails egg too!

Now if i can just get that kind of return when i buy beers!

The Dude of Food likes Leberkasse und kaffe

A good way to start a leisurely saturday is with a leberkasse from the downtown LA Grand Central food court.

They need to do something about the parking though. The street is $4.00 an hour and the lot across the street is $5.00 flat. Can’t imagine what it’s like on weekday but it must be madness. Probably not best suited for folks who are on a budget or quick lunch break unless you can walk from your office.
