Fettuccine Alfredo Throwdown!

Last evening we were invited to our friend's house for dinner.  It was none other than at the home of the Anabolic Gourmet.  He saw my posting for chicken fettuccine Alfredo and wanted a chance to top mine in flavor and nutritional benefits.  I must admit, it was right up there with Foodie Mama's.  The sauce was very creamy and not from whipping cream, but from non-fat half and half.  I did not even know there was such a thing.  Very tasty!  Will couldn't (or maybe wouldn't) even pick Foodie Mama's or Anabolic Gourmet's over one another.  It was a very nice evening with some good friends and neighbors.   "Life is about good friends, good food, and good health to enjoy it" - AG

Foodie Mama made the spinach salad.  I love this and don't make it enough.  I cooked the bacon in the microwave on top of a paper towel and a paper bag, to get all the grease.  Added some sliced red onion also.
