since it's the new year and i promised myself to update the blog more often, i have decided to start a new series on the blog. i will do my best to post anything new that i whip up in the kitchen for dinner. i have noticed that i have been creating new recipes when i procrastinate (yes, new concoctions happen when i don't study), and a lot of them surprisingly turns out to be more than just edible - they are actually good. so let's kick this series of with chicken and crab alfredo.
i hate moving. i'm not a big fan of apartment hunting. i hate packing and i hate unpacking. i hate deciding where everything should be going. i hate hauling stuff in and out trucks. it's insanely tiring.
a few months ago, we moved 47 miles from our old house to sacramento for school. the move happened a few days before school started that i was still in the process of moving and hauling stuff out of my car during the first few weeks of school. to make things worse, that was the busiest time of school. i, however, survived that chaotic time - beaten and bruised.
i never really understood the concept of a mac and cheese until a few years ago. i love pasta, but using only cheese as a sauce, seems very weird. it did not seem right. it did not sit well with me. i think you get what i mean.
my first encounter with the mac and cheese was not very good. i tried the blue box variety sitting in our pantry - this was before i learned how to cook, about 6 years ago. i followed the directions and hoped for the best. i poked the overcooked pasta doused with reconstituted cheese, ate it and i was filled with an overwhelming feeling of disappointment. it was chalky and up until now, i can't figure out why shawn loves that thing.
