    Slimy, white goop—that’s what we had for dinner the other night. It was “Alfredo sauce “out of a jar. I don’t know why I buy that stuff, I guess because I was hungry and in a weak moment, and I keep thinking about restaurant prepared meals, but this is not it. I’m not a good cook, but even I can make a pasta sauce that passes as “Alfredo “that’s so much better than the salty tasteless junk in a jar.

    I may feed the rest of it to our dog.

    I bought this once, a good brand, Newman's Own, and you are absolutely right, it was disgusting.

    Okay----Ritz Crackers. Yup. Okay---I did open up two cans o' catt food, today(a large one and a small one), and I'll tell ya why. Itsta give two o' the catts a high-dollar pill that I give once a month during flea season. In fact, you can not only split a 1-pill dose for one catt between TWO catts, but you can do the rest o' the cats, while you're at it. But yeah---one pill, as prescribed for one catt, is overkill. What I do is crush the pill up in a bowl and mix it up with canned food VERY thoroughly, along with a couple other secret ingredients from the farm supply store. So anyway---I let the two catts that really need the stuff eat their fill, first. Then, let the other cats finish the recipe off, which they do. But see---today, one o' the two catts was being stubborn about eating any o' the doctored food. What I was forced to do was put food in a crate & lock her in it, till she ate it. It took awhile, but it worked. Yup. Now, part B is to apply the topical junk on them. There is one a my cats---Teen Mom or aka Tailer Swift, who does NOT like topical, and if she even sees the applicator, she will run and hide---even for hours. So, it takes strategy, part of which is to sneak up on her and do her first, while she's unaware. Yup. See? Hope thatt helps you some. Thankk Mee.

    The packet fettuccine alfredo is actually good. It does not have all the garbage ingredients either. We have that on occasion with seafood...

    I might look for that.

    do you add milk to it?

    As long as I've got milk and Parmesan cheese, I can make a passible Alfredo sauce.

    Okay---Had ritz crackers for appetizer, went and gave the doggs their Hog Medication on bread. They wolfed it down. Then, had a can o' Cammmells Spaggetti, w/o meatballs, right out o' the can, no heat. Yeah, it mighta been better with alfredo sauce, but I don't know. Thing is---the catts gather round for summa this Cammmalls' spagetti, so yeah--I give 'em some. There is no doubt in my mind that this kind of food for elderly shut-ins with pets is extensively tested for "Palllllativity" or whatever, so pets will eat it, too. Yup. But yeah---it's just as well; no need for mee to eat a whole can. Hope that helps you some. Thank mee.

    We had some frozen in-the-shell shrimp, which I thawed and peeled. Stuck them on skewers with pineapple chunks, red onion, red bell pepper. Under the broiler. Served on buckwheat noodles I had. Plus salad. Easy and from what I had on hand.

    edited to add "bell"
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Yes, it calls for water and milk with a tablespoon of butter.
