I am generally the cook in the family as I tend to have more time and motivation than Mr. Snowgoose. His cooking jobs usually involve doing the dishes, making pizza dough, and baking. Recently he came home from a long day at the office and annouced he wanted to make pasta carbonara. Great! Except that I'd already precooked dinner the day before (chicken and yellow rice) and the fact we had no eggs, bacon, or white wine in the house. We set off to a local market down the street with the dogs so that he could get ingredients.
The recipe comes from The Joy of Cooking (Mr. Snowgoose's cooking bible) and involves cooking everything in the bacon grease.
It was to die for. We barely had enough for lunch leftovers.
You can bet he'll be making this again, though probably not anytime soon. I don't know if it was the pasta or the fact all the animals sleep on the bed, but in the middle of the night that night, the wooden bedframe snapped.
That time we went to Tofino
