On Her Own

Things have been SO very busy the past two weeks. And while I like to try and leave something for dinner for the other members of the family, some days it just doesn't come together. Last week I had to bring in the junior chef. With nothing but the briefest of suggestions and the ingredients, she took off.
It never occurred to me to find her a cookbook - what Italian cookbook wouldn't have a basic Alfredo sauce in it? But she found it on her own and and made Three Cheese Tortellini Alfredo for dinner all on her own.
According to dad, it was perfect! I didn't need to eat it to know that!
