Mad Hungry MY Way: Dawn's Spaghetti Carbonara

Posted by

We get tons of feedback on here and on facebook about people making the Mad Hungry recipes or their riffs on them; so on Mondays we'd like to start posting Mad Hungry MY Way Mondays, a part of the mad hungry blog where we show YOUR Mad Hungry Meals. Send your Mad Hungry My Way pics, riffs and stories to & we'll post!

This Week's Mad Hungry MY Way comes from Dawn Stanek who gave the MH Spaghetti Carb some added protein
"I added a twist...chicken. While the bacon was cooking and nearly done I added one diced up chicken breast and cooked it immersed in the bacon juices. Also, because I cannot judge measuring as easily, I just added one 5 oz size piece of parmesan to the meal and instead of spaghetti I used angel hair pasta; we like it a lot more."

  • Very interested in Dawn's Chicken Spaghetti Carbonara but recipe isn't attached - how can I get it???

  • I just added one breast of chicken to her recipe in her index. I saw her make it on TV and then found her directions spelled out for me. I followed everything she did other than adding the chicken after the bacon was done and then cooking angel hair pasta (about 3/4 of a box) instead of spaghetti and used a 5 oz package of parmesan that I grated, everything else was essentially the same.

  • I liked this. I really apeipcrate abstraction in writing. My beta reader thinks a little too much, but he is beginning to understand my love affair with it and applying it to his work in the later chapters.Magic is abstract in every way. And this was beautifully done. There was one line that I stumbled over: My skirts, hair began blowing towards the Dim; pulling me in, calling me.First off the semicolin is used incorrectly. You use those to join two full sentences that the second is an extension of the first thought.Secondly: My skirts, hair doesn't mean skirts and hair. It makes is sound almost like her skirts have hair. Which would be funny but I don't think that's what you're going for.I think the sentence should look like: My skirts and hair blew toward the Dim, calling me. Pulling me.Good cliffhanger with the appearance of the guy.Hope this helps someJ
