Yes, I said it, bacon makes everything better. I know that nutritionally it isn’t the best for you, but if you have bacon, say on a once a week basis, how bad can it be? There are many comfort foods that have bacon attached to them in some fashion. One of my family’s favorite comfort foods is pasta carbonara and that is what’s for dinner tonight.
The baby boy and the baby girl discovered their love for this dish at a small restaurant next to our rental apartment in Le Canon, France a few summers ago. There is nothing that beats the comfort level of this pasta dish; eggs, bacon, parmesan cheese, sautéed onions and a little cream plus the pasta. There is nothing not to like here.

I agree 🙂
As I was telling mommyverbs, I myself, prefer sausage, but hey it is still in the pork family and in my opinion pork is the best meat.:)
My X says the exact same thing… just ask him what his favorite food is….. I’m a fan of the comfort foods every now and then. Bon Appetit! 🙂
Funny thing is I don’t care that much for it; it’s my hubby and the babies who dive into the pasta carbonara. I eat my vegetables though I do love the smell of bacon. I prefer sausage; sausage with mashed potatoes, sausage with oysters, sausage with two eggs over-easy and rye toast. That’s just me. 🙂
Bacon has had a bad press here recently – they’ve suggested one rasher a day as an absolute maximum. However – I find it takes two rashers to make a bacon roll 🙂
Always the best bit, when added to any dish 🙂
Bacon has also had bad press here as well. I used to love grilled cheese and bacon but these days I have come to prefer sausage myself.
