Tortellini Alfredo

I took this with my phone, sorry its not better quality.

One of my personal favorite dishes, EVER!

You will need:
Six Cheese Tortellini (I get mine from Schwans)
Sweet onion
Alfredo Sauce (I don't like the jar kind so I use the McCormick Packet of Creamy Garlic Alfredo)

Cook tortellini according to package. Start the alfredo sauce also according to package. Saute your onion in oil and steam your broccoli. When all is done, put in pan and mix together. EASY as 1-2-3!

What's for dinner?!

Tonight I made Southwestern chicken with FRESH PICKED onion and green bell pepper, and mexican rice. I wanted to share how DELICIOUS it was!

Check out these veggies my grandparents grew...

The chicken came marinated already so I can't give you the recipe for that. And I just tossed in the veggies a few min with the chicken and oil to cook them. The rice is a recipe from my friend Aleena and I am ADDICTED to it! I use el pato in it which my hubby and I love love love! I had to put some sour cream in Preston's since I make it so spicy but he really loved it if you can't tell by the picture..

What did you have for dinner?

Cinnamon Apples

Preston really likes the stewed cinnamon apples from Chili's and my Mom had given me a bunch of apples so I decided to make them for him. I of course called my Mom and said, how do I make stewed apples.. and well, here they are! Great for kids and babies!


Wash and peel your apples. I didn't put amounts on the supplies because you might just need to judge it by how many apples YOU are using. But I used 3 apples. Then dice them up into your desired sized pieces. Put them in a sauce pan with your water (I used 1/4 cup), Sugar (I used 2 teaspoons), cinnamon (I used 1 teaspoon) and a little bit of butter. (I think I used about a 1/2 tablespoon). Stir and simmer on low stirring occasionally until your apples are to your desired chewiness! is that a word?! Well, Preston LOVED them. Enjoy!
