Monday 6 August
Still no sight of cream. Too d@mn hot to shop. Also too many eggs (mostly because we bought those lovely Amish eggs on top of a doz. we already had a home). So another quick improv. using the butt end of the first-cut ham we usually buy at Krause's. Just the usual carbonara (which we haven't had since 24 April; again the blog shows its worth—I would have sworn we had this every other week) but with little batonettes of the ham understudying the role of bacon. PDG.
