It’s so great having a new baby at home. I just love recovering from childbirth by waking up every few hours in the middle of the night to try to get a screaming infant to eat.
I shouldn’t complain, really. Truman’s a fabulous baby, all things considered. He does eat eventually. And he sleeps. And he looks like the 5th member of a boy band. Move over Justin Bieber.
Eric and I are learning all sorts of new things this time around. We took Truman in for a second bilirubin test yesterday (he’s fine) and that’s when Eric told me that this whole time he thought everyone was saying “Belly Ribbon Test.” Yes! I love that I have a medium for making Eric’s mispronunciations public.
So the original recipe for this pasta calls for half the amount of bacon. That’s one slice per serving. Uhhhh, yeah right. Pretty much anytime I cook bacon I make extra because it’s impossible not to sneak some of it. So I went ahead and doubled it. Bacon’s good for you, right?
This stuff is goooood. We ignored everything else in our fridge until it was gone. It has a really light flavor, which makes the bacon and peas stand out. Oh and did I mention that this takes 20 minutes to throw together? If you have an infant and a toddler, make that 30 minutes. Still though. Not bad!
