Vodka Pasta with Chicken for the Birthday Boy

Posted Feb 22 2010 12:00am

Today was a long day!  I started with a 5:45 total conditioning class.  When they started doing abs- the last 5 minutes of class, I ditched out and ran to Panera for a birthday bagel for Brady.  Then I ran home and showered for school.  School was good but the kids were a little wild today.

I came home after tutoring and started making dinner.  Dinner was picked out by Brady and was pretty simple – Vodka Pasta sauce with chicken for him and a variation over broccoli for me.

Brady’s special birthday plate:

  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 1 chopped fine onion
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 2 c. chicken broth
  • 1 large can of crushed tomatoes
  • 3-4 cubes of frozen basil and garlic
  • sprinkle of fresh parm.
  • 1/2 c. cream or more if you’d like it thicker
  • salt and pepper

For my sauce I skipped the cream and subbed with fat free half and half.  It was an experiment but it worked!!  It was delicious!  I can’t wait to have it again!  I had mine on broccoli instead of pasta.


Dessert was Brady’s favorite – vanilla frozen yogurt with a little milk and some Nesquick mix.  This makes  like a frosty, smoothie creamy dessert.

We are exhausted from just finishing our taxes!  Yay for being done before March!

Tomorrow is girls dinner here!
