A lot of people ask whether I “properly” cook every day and the answer is a big resounding "no"!
I wasn’t going to post today but I thought I would share the method to my everyday train of thought when it comes to cooking for my little tribe. Let's chat about this delicious fettuccine carbonara. Hubby and I visited @birch_store in Moss Vale (here in the Southern Highlands, NSW - a must-see stop for any foodie visiting the area!) this morning and picked up the most beautiful bacon from @talucaparkfreerange, a local Southern Highlands producer. Then the day just disappeared - don’t ask me where it went but suddenly it was 5pm and time to take my daughter to her friend’s. After the drop off, I realised nothing was on the go for dinner and that's when I had the brainwave to make my mum’s carbonara which is just the best!
A quick trip to @woolworths_au for mushies followed (we’re so lucky to have wonderful seasonal produce available at the major supermarkets 🙏), got home, popped the pasta on and dinner was on the table within half an hour, complete with a garnish of parsley from the patch...this is how I normally cook - on the fly and with a little bit of this and a little bit of that!
It's such a simple yet tasty recipe, I would love for you to try it. Of course if you do, please tag me on your socials so I can see your wonderful creation.
Thanks mum for the recipe, love you!
