"So as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy"

"Classico" Cream Sauce

Another one of our favorite "stand-by's" is the Classico cream sauces. Kieran loves them, I love the convenience. But they can get expensive :-) And I've been trying to make my own. Here's what I have come up with so far. It's pretty good I think, I have used with both breakfast gravy and cut back on the garlic and dinner with pasta and added more veggies. I have also made this up in the morning and put into a jar and kept in fridge till dinnertime and just warmed up on the stove and then poured over pasta. If it gets too thick, just mix in a little more milk!

Cream Sauce

5 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 butter
Saute in a saucepan till butter is melted and garlic is soft

1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
(these can be adjusted to taste!)

In a separate bowl or cup
Mix 4 TB cornstarch or flour with 1 c. cold milk - stir till cornstarch/flour is completely mixed in.
Add 1 cup cream
Mix into butter and garlic
Stir constantly till thickens to a sauce consistency.
(I have also doubled the milk and cream and left the butter and garlic amounts alone and it turned out good!)

~Add 1/4-1/2 cup of chopped roasted red peppers and serve over pasta
~Omit garlic or reduce amount and add a pound of breakfast sausage and serve over biscuits
~Add sauteed veggies of your choice and chopped chicken and serve over pasta
Make your own version!
