Pasta is our friend!
IT’S NATIONAL FETTUCCINE ALFREDO DAY!
Alfredo must be some kind of slang in Italian that means “just throw a bunch of cream and cheese at it.” And while we love pasta, alfredo sauce has usually been a bit rich for our blood. Both of us have hearty tomato sauce encoded into our Eastern European genes. So there was only so much we could handle out of today – not that we didn’t enjoy it!
Our locale of choice was Tucci Benucch at the Mall of America. They’ve usually been a good pick in the past for some Italian fare, and we’re glad we went.
We ordered it as a half-size pasta and split it between the four of us. A great way to save ourselves from eating too much. Apparently 1 cup of this stuff is calorically equivalent to the entire crab salad dinner we made last night, of which we still have about 1/3 of as leftovers. That’s just silly. It’s good to make plans ahead of time when dealing with things that are so dense! If you can believe it, we even skipped dessert :X
This week is quickly becoming a crazy week. Tomorrow is both Oatmeal Monday and National Molasses Bar Day!
