We are having a ridiculously busy week this week and that also means that we will not be eating together at all… 🙁
Yesterday evening I had a preweddingshoot with a weddingcouple, tonight Tom has a party for the announcement of the best company of the year, tomorrow he has to do something for the foundation that he and his friends started (it’s a great initiative by the way; they are all three fisherman and the goal is to get children in need (handicapped, either mentally or physically) to have a great day by the water. So the last couple of months they have been really busy getting sponsors, volunteers and eventually get children that want to participate. The first event is scheduled to be on April 25th. “Unfortunately” I will be in Italy with a friend at that time, so I cannot take the photos, but I am sure the event will be successful! If you want more information on it, there is a link on my blogroll. The foundation is called “Het Peuterfonds” and the site is in Dutch (just thought I’d warn you)
Where was I? O yes, thursday Tom has a dinner with former collegues and last but not least on friday I have a wedding to shoot which will last till about 10 PM.
Usually I am quite fine with Tom being away once or twice during any week, as that gives me the opportunity to eat the things I know he doesn’t like (he hates blue cheese and cheese in general!!) but having to eat alone is not so much fun if it lasts the entire week.
I am busy enough so the week will fly by anyway; big photoshoot for a new customer which started today and will last till thursday. I’m quite excited about it as it involves shooting food and lifestyle! My favorite subjects! I will probably post a few of the results here at some point.
Anyway, I woke up this morning thinking I would be making something cheesy tonight, but then I am also trying to lose weight and cheese and weightloss don’t really mix that well. Not the cheese I was thinking about anyway, so instead I decided to go for a healthy pasta dish. Quick and easy and totally delicious and it still featured a little bit of cheese on top so it would have to do.
The recipe is almost to simple to write down, but here it is anyway:
- 200 gr spaghetti uncooked
- 175 gr bacon strips
- 7 gloves of garlic yes, it is called garlic spaghetti after all
- 10 spring onions
- chicken stock either from a cube or selfmade
Cut the onions and garlic into small pieces. Cook the spaghetti in some chicken stock. In the meantime put a frying pan on the stove and put bacon strips, onions, garlic and a bit of sambal in the pan. Once done mix with the spaghetti et voila... nice and light meal! Ofcourse you can spice this up with whatever you like, but I loved the taste. I didn't use spring onions as for some reason the supermarket was completely out of them!
I would suggest having some sort of fresh salad with this pasta dish to get your greens in as well! It's very quick as there is not a lot of ingredients involved, but filling and tasty.
