Even though my computer is not totally back to normal (the USB problem is fixed but now I can't burn any CDs...argh), but you know what makes everything better?
Home-made alfredo sauce that is the most AMAZING THING OMG.
Seriously. I found this recipe for alfredo sauce on AllRecipes.com and it is the best thing of all time. It's super easy, not really good for you (heavy cream, anyone?) but I used low fat cheese, so that counts for something, right?
Anyhoodle, things are looking up!
