For those lazy days

There are some days that you wake up and the only thing you want to do is go back to bed, or lie down on the couch. This happens to me on days when I have to do something I hate, like cleaning. Usually I postpone it while I watch TV or read my favorite blogs until it is super late in the afternoon and I haven't started. Call me lazy, if you wish. Obviously, no one wants to go out to go to the supermarket on this kind of day. First of all, because there is no way you are going to take off your pajamas, and second, because you haven't washed your hair in three days and are afraid that you will come across someone you know. The laziness is so big that you almost don't eat, maybe just snack a little bit. At dinner time, you are so hungry that you would eat a truck full of cows. This is when you decide that it was enough. Now it's time to move your butt or you will get stuck and have to live in the couch for the rest of your life (although it wouldn't be that bad). So you decide to go to the kitchen and see what you can make for dinner.

If this happens to you, dear friends, I have the solution (as long as you have the ingredients). It is great for hungry ones. It is a calorie-bomb that gives you bursts of satisfaction at every bite. A recipe easy enough for the very beginners and fast enough for the laziest day. This is my personal fast food: spaghetti carbonara.

To make it you only need bacon, onion, one egg and spaghetti (or any other type of pasta). Now is when you might disagree and say that you prefer to add cheese, or mushrooms, or who-knows-what . No. This is my blog, dear friends, and these are my spaghetti carbonara. Please trust me, they are exquisite.

Spaghetti Carbonara
For 2 hungry souls 

1/2lb/ 250g spaghetti
1 cup/ 250ml heavy cream
1 onion, finely chopped
7 slices (or more) of bacon, cut in 1/2-inch wide pieces

Heat 2 tbsp of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and cook over medium heat for about 1 minute, until a bit softened. Add the bacon and cook for another 5 minutes. Add the cream. Bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper.

Cook the pasta in a pot following the instructions on the package. Strain it (do not rinse it!) and put it back in the pot. Pour the sauce over it. Add the raw egg and stir very well (the egg cooks with the heat from the pasta and the sauce). Serve immediately. Go back to the couch to eat them.
