Day 13 BM #56 -
Pasta, spaghetti and the like are the new rage at home. The kids say they are getting bored of eating the same old dal-rice, roti-sabzi. Under similar circumstances my mom would say, "We never got bored of food like your kids. Neither you nor your siblings ever gave me such jitters. You have pampered your kids and so now they have the upper hand...yada yada yada..". I guess the older generation will always have a different perspective, right?
Anyway, talking of pasta, let us travel to Italy and taste their Alfredo Sauce. Though the regular Alfredo sauce is calorie dense and very rich, I have tried a low fat version which went rather well at home with the kids. Add to the mix some Quinoa pasta and broccoli, I have a healthy meal for them.
