Well Fed, Flat Broke: Bacon Spaghetti
So, Tuesday. Here we are again, having survived Monday but with so little left to give to anyone but Don Draper or anything but season 3 of Mad Men (DO NOT TELL ME ANYTHING, I AM SO BEHIND). Tuesday is the weekday equivalent of the day after the day after the gym â€“ it hurts, and yet somehow you never see it coming.
So, spaghetti. Only, this is Tuesday, and therefore not the night for careful sauce-making or slowly building deep flavour.
This is â€¦ blender night. This is â€¦ â€œis that bacon?â€ night. This is â€¦ well, this is pretty damn good, even if it seems a little trashy.
It is a little trashy, and thatâ€™s kind of the point. Bacon spaghetti looks just like normal spaghetti except that itâ€™s hiding bacon. You can add herbs if you want, but if you donâ€™t â€¦ meh. It goes well with cold beer, and itâ€™s the kind of dish your small person or small people will eat without even negotiating the number of bites theyâ€™ll be required to take before theyâ€™re done.
