Mealtime Makeovers...Fettuccini in Florida PDF Print E-mail

When Landon was just about six months old we took a trip down to visit my mom (Stefanie) in Florida. Jason, Landon and I hopped on a plane for an eight day trip where Landon was spoiled rotten and did not have to sit by himself for more than 30 seconds. 

This trip was wonderful for me. We saw some sites, relaxed and ate more food than anyone would ever need to eat. One evening in particular Stef asked me what I would like for a special meal and I chose, of course, Italian. She made us the most delicious Fettuccini Alfredo I have ever eaten. She then made hand breaded thin sliced chicken strips to top it all off! Amazing!

Now I am not quite as good at cooking as Stef but I like to think that we are comparable or at least will be someday. I have toyed with this recipe a little bit and have come close to making it near perfect. Now, it’s no Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill, but it is pretty darn close. It is probably one of the best meals ever created.
