On one of my last grocery shopping trips before Marlowe was born, I grabbed a few packages of kielbasa and smoked sausages because they are easy. Luckily these are good in the fridge for awhile, because I kind of forgot about them. I was flipping through a magazine one day (you know, because I have so much leisure time these days) and saw a recipe from Hillshire Farm for Sausage Alfredo. It looked good, and I had enough of the ingredients to make it work in my own way, so I pulled it out and forgot about it for a few weeks. I kept moving the piece of paper around until I finally decided to just make it. I wasn’t sure it was going to be very good, and I didn’t like Lo liked alfredo stuff much, but I wanted to try it out. It was actually really good and Lo liked it too. It’s certainly not a very healthy meal, but I would make it again in the future because it was so easy. Not the prettiest photo, but when you only have moments to spare before the baby is hungry again, plating isn’t a priority – you just need the food in your belly.
