MataHari Do you heat the bacon, mushrooms, onion, garlic, Boursin, grated cheese to make a sauce, then add to the pasta?

I first fry the bacon and put it on kitchenroll to get rid of the excess fat, and then I use a little bit of the greasy to fry the onions, garlic and then add the mushrooms...after a little while I add the Boursin and the cheese. In the meantime, the pasta has cooked, I add that and at the last moment I add the crumbled bacon over it...if you do that earlier it gets soggy and I like it to be crispy...

Sounds excellent. Think I will give it a try.

Cheers.

This is what we're having - the cook's day off today, so:

Husband: Made Pasta (for the youngest); Green Lentils; Pulao

Daughter 1: Made some yummy potato curry (self taught!)

Me: Just had dinner! Now feeding the younger one.

Me in the afternoon: Made lunch (actually warmed up what my cook made yesterday, but made fresh rotis and naans)

Is it common for expats to have cooks and maids in Dubai?

Depends, in my case since I am in office from 8-5, I prefer to have a maid and a cook. When I return home, I like to spend time with the kids and relax, not cook and clean.

Frankly, if I had a choice I'd prefer to do the cleaning myself (think I'd do a much better job than the maids I've had so far!!). The main reason for having them is to babysit my kids for a couple of hours until I return from work....
