Quick easy meal

I haven't really committed to a scheduled menu this week (or last week!). Tonight, I boiled up two boxes of Fettuccine Alfredo and added two bunches of broccoli during the last few minutes. Served with a salad made up of bagged organic baby greens, walnuts, chopped apples and a few stray blueberries.

Ideally, I would have the time to make my own alfredo sauce and cover whole wheat pasta with it. However, today I was busy playing an alphabet game with one of the kids and dinner just snuck up on me. Times like these make the convenience foods that I acquire on sale worth hanging onto to. I'd rather take something partially unhealthy and make it better, than drive through for fast food.

Everyone cleared their plates - including huge helpings of salad for everyone.
