Creamy Parmesan Fusilli

On Saturday morning we went to see my favourite movie in the theater - Home AloneBreakfast was a hotdog and some popcorn :-)  We followed this by an equally nutritious lunch of Kraft Dinner.

For dinner we headed to Simmer Hot Pot.  We ordered the dinner for two, as well as a seafood plate.  It was definitely too much food!  A cinnamon bun and pickled radishes were served with the meal.


After dinner we went to the second Christmas party of the season.  We were out pretty late, and ate a late lunch today.  I made creamy Parmesan Fusilli

Creamy Parmesan Fusilli

4 cups Fusilli pasta
3 T butter
2/3 cup fresh Parmesan, grated
1/3 cup fresh parsley, or a few T dried
1.5 T mayo
1/2 - 3/4 cup whipping cream
1-2 cloves garlic, minced
6-6 bacon slices, cooked and chopped

Cook pasta according to directions, drain and set aside.  Melt the butter in a small saucepan.  Add everything else, mix well and heat, almost to a boil.  Mix with the pasta and serve immediately.


What did you do this weekend?  
Have you gone to any holiday parties yet?

OOO...I love creamy pasta sauces. Such a holiday treat!

We love Home Alone too :) Watch it every Christmas Eve.

We were able to get a Christmas tree this weekend. It was a lot of fun.

Mmm the pasta looks good!

I like that your meal was served with a cinnamon bun. That's my kind of meal.

Wait wait wait. Waaaaaiiiit. Home Alone is in the theatre?! Where?! Is it still there or have I missed the golden opportunity?!?

We had friends over for supper on Saturday (I made homemade pizza, a couple of appetizers, and red velvet cupcakes), and then I spent most of Sunday on the couch, trying to rest up and suffering with a cold.

No holiday parties yet! First one December 15th.
