Times are bad so Princess and I decided this week to cook!
I dug out this old Pasta recipe book that Ming bought for me a long time ago and flipped through the pages with Princess to come up with something we could both agree on. Everything I wanted to eat, she didn't want and everything I didn't want to eat, she wanted.
How like that!
So in the end we both settled for the most standard thing that anyone could eat. Carbonara!
It's actually freaking easy to make, at least the one in the recipe book.
All you need to do is boil your spaghetti.
Then cut up some bacon and ham if you like.
And fry the ham with olive oil until it's "golden brown" or so the recipe book described it as.
Then while you're getting that done, crack 3 eggs and beat them with 3 table spoons of cream, something Princess very proudly did while looking as stylish as she could.
And then once the bacon is cooked enough, put in the pasta and the beated eggs and cream into the pan and you've got it all sorted out.
The end result...
Not too bad eh.. only took us like 30 minutes.
The joke though is that it ended up being more expensive to cook for two people than for us to eat out. I've learned that unless we're dividing the food up to 4 or more people, just eat out!
Oh oh and disclaimer... my food poisoning wasn't caused by this pasta ok?
I mean my cooking may not be good... in fact it may be bad.. but it's not poison.
