Ham and Pea Pasta- Lactose Free

So, I am a really good cook- I will own up to that.  What I am terrible at is actually creating a recipe, and writing down what I do so that I can recreate it exactly. So posting a recipe for Ham and Pea Pasta  that I adapted to be lactose-free, not dairy free, lactose free.  There are a lot more sinful versions of this pasta using a carbonara base, or heavy cream, and I wanted to simplify this dish, use one pot, not use superfluous ingredients, because right now I can't just run out to the store to get something, and just make it something I didn't have to take dairy pills to eat. 16 ounces Pasta 1/4 cup LF butter one small onion, minced 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour 1/2 cup LF milk and non-fat greek yogurt mixed together (About 1/4 cup of each item mixed together) 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan (I like to use my micro-plain to grate Parmesan cheese, don't waste your time with the pre-grated stuff) Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste 2

Tough Times

Welcome to the new!   All this time home due to Covid-19 has allowed me to revive my defunct blog, which unfortunately is lost, and all the great travel content with it that took me hours and hours to compile [if I wasn't not touching my face, palm to forehead here, instead, dramatic sigh].  Making the lemonade from the lemons.  This blog will feature food, travel, writing, jewelry from my adventures.  And adventures we will have, although not right now.   Right now we are staying at home, Hubbs, Max (the Bichon) and I, doing our part to keep you safe. But What's In It For You?   (I know, I know already...) For this post it is a few essential for my sanity, not life, most are related to restoring my poor hands.  These are products that are awesome anytime you need some really moisturizing products for your skin!  And the oil based ones give you a nice little shine on your skin too.  So even if you can't get them now... get them later, es
