Fusilli Carbonara.

Sunday 26th June 2011

Heading home today and so, as we have to clean & tidy the carnage that we’ve created here over the last few days, I always make pasta & pesto as our parting lunch. It’s from a jar so leaves very little washing up to do. On a day when time is precious, I can definitely think of better things to be doing rather than ‘slaving over a hot stove’, as Mum would say.

“What have we got for lunch today?” My son, Zephy enquired.

“Pasta & pesto.” I informed him.

“Ooh..” He groaned.

“Why, what’s wrong with pasta & pesto?” I asked.

“It’s just that we always have pasta & pesto and I would prefer a different pasta like…” He thought for a minute before saying; “…carbonara or something.”

“Your wish is my command.” I said.

I do like to be given ideas of what to eat. I might not always take them up but day-in-day-out I get tired of thinking about what to make. It’s nice to have a helping hand.

I made this one with crème fraiche & whole grain mustard. Everyone was pleased. 🙂

I started this blog to record the meals I make for my son. One of the many great memories I have of my childhood is the food I ate. The smell of boiling cauliflower on a Sunday morning that steamed up the windows, Lamb sandwiches for tea in front of the tele, cubes of raw jelly at nan’s house and of course mum’s homemade pizza (made with a short crust base) I hope my food creates good memories for my son but if nothing else this blog might jog his memory when he’s older! Enjoy.

    Creme fraiche and whole grain mustard sound like a great duo! And I love the egg cups sitting in the pasta – super cool presentation. 🙂
