October: Days 21-23

Day 21 - a recipe
Although thoroughly unhealthy, it's quite tasty :)
Alfredo Sauce
1/4 cup butter
1 cup heavy cream
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions: Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Add cream and simmer for 5 minutes, then add garlic and cheese and whisk quickly, heating through. Stir in parsley and serve.

Day 22 - a website that has been meaningful since your loss

I found the Creative Everyday website, and it eventually led me to Still Life 365 . Without those two sites, I wouldn't have made it. Creative Everyday gave me permission to do something...anything creative. Even if it was small. Or imperfect. And I needed that creative outlet to express my grief. Still Life 365 then was the perfect follow-up in my journey. Seeing the art and poetry daily, and how people expressed their grief in different ways was really powerful. Although I haven't posted something creative every single day...especially as of late, I still feel more confidence in myself than I imagine I would be without having taken this path.

Day 23 - a youtube video that makes you laugh
