Food Friday: Carbonara

I have been a recreational baker for quite a while.  But I have also been inspired to work on my all around culinary skills.  This was the recipe I tried last week:

Fettuccini Carbonara

Carbonara can be tricky.  The eggs will sometimes scramble and I find that pancetta can be overpowering.  This recipe had the egg yolks combined with heavy cream first, which I believe helped to prevent the scrambling.  And by using bacon, it ensured that the dish was well flavored, but not a suitable salt lick.  It was delicious and has made its way into the recipe binder as a keeper.

Sorry, no picture!  It didn’t last long enough.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
