    carelesswhisper - It went very well. He is a very nice young man and very respectful. And he asked for seconds of the alfredo pasta - always a way to impress! LOL When it's your time, you'll be just fine. :-)

    jdouglas - your shrimp sounds delicious. But too bad on the pesto. :-(

    Juanita, sounds like you have a full house right now!

    We have some leftover meat sauce, so we're having spaghetti, too.

    FWIW, I posted about pesto I had frozen last fall and hoped was still good. It definitely was NOT. But, I threw together a quick fake pesto right in the pot with the pasta, and was actually quite good. I also made shrimp roasted in the oven for the first time. It was surprisingly tasty that way with just a touch of EVOO and a garlic seasoning.

    It is left over night at my house. Time to clean out the refrigerator. Choices are fish from last night, hot dogs from Saturday or cheeseburger casserole from a dinner late last week.

    Tonight we're having roasted chicken, mashed potatoes, and sautéed corn from some fresh ears I haven't used yet.
