Although not my favorite spice, I love sprinkling nutmeg in my dairy based foods like soups and carbonara sauce. It does make the dish a bit sweet, but in general, I love the taste of it. I think dairy and nutmeg make a perfect couple. =)
This picture was taken sometime this year, when my sister and I were cooking some spaghetti carbonara. After she sprinkled some nutmeg in the pot, she placed the bottle in the counter, but our cat was trying to see what we were doing, and when the cat climbed the counter and walked, the cat knocked out the bottle and it resulted to this. Well, a bottle of nutmeg isn't really cheap - we were quite angry at the cat, but of course we didn't scold the cat. Looking at the bright side of things, this scene made the kitchen smelled good.
We now have a new bottle of nutmeg. Yey for that!
