The One with the nervous cooking

i find cooking quite theraputic don't u?
especially when u have a lot on your mind, are stressed or in my case extremely nervous hehe

anyway i was hungry ad have a craving for corn and potatoes so i came up with this

i'm not sure if it's a real recipe but hey it's simple and fast to make!

Potato and Corn in Carbonara sauce

1 medium potato
1 cup of corn kernels
Leggo Carbonara pasta sauce
A dash of Black pepper (to taste)

1. Cut potatoes up into small cubes. (not too big or thick or they'll take too long to cook)
2. Measure out about 1 cup of corn. I used the frozen kind for convenience. (amount can vary according to your tastes)
3. Add about 2 tablespoons of oil to the frying pan. Use just enough to coat the bottom of the pan.
4. Fry the potatoes first over medium heat, stirring occasionally to avoid sticking. Fry until they turn opaque and are lightly browned.
5. Add in the corn, lower the heat a little and fry together with the potatoes. Do not fry too long or they'll turn mushy.
6. Add in enough pasta sauce to cover the potatoes and corn. Add black pepper to taste. Stir to mix.
Tadah! And u're done!!

(And I just thought of  something, we could add a little bacon to give it a little extra flavour and crunch. It just involves an extra step in the beginning of chopping the bacon into small pieces and frying it before the potatoes over high heat to make it crispy)

ok this kind of posts won't come often cos it's not everyday i can cook something and blog about it immmediately afterward.

but i'll try =P
