“Elevate your pasta experience with our culinary delight—Pasta with Chicken Chorizo, Whole Grain Mustard, and Basil. A flavorful symphony that transforms every bite into a gourmet adventure.”


I noticed something about myself this past week.

Something that I haven’t noticed in a long time. Maybe since my 20’s when I lived by myself. That’s weird to say.

With my dear Mr. B far, far, away in some hotter than balls desert talking all things oil-schmoil, I’ve noticed when he is traveling, my sense of urgency dwindles. I’m like, “manana” to the going to the grocery store, vacuuming the living room, and meal planning. Even though I consider myself to have a case of the OCD’s, none of these things seem to bother me. I literally could sit on the couch, watch marathon episodes of How I Met Your Mother, sip on a glass of bubbly, and eat takeout sushi the entire week.

I guess I don’t find it appealing to keep up the house just for me. I do pride myself in keeping a tidy house for the hubs, but sometimes a girl has to let her hair down and drop a crumb or two on the floor. Am I right? Right. I think in a way, it’s a good thing to have a balance of both. When the hubs isn’t traveling, I try to get stuff done before he arrives home so I can sit and actually chit-chat with him. Connecting at the end of the day is very important to me. How are you dear? What’s the latest and greatest?

But like I mentioned above, I also need time to marinate. I need to let things roll of off my shoulders because being a busy body at heart, I need a day or two to say, “manana.” Which is why I think this dish I made for y’all today is perfect.

This pasta is quick and easy for those crazy weeknights where you feel like you’re running around with your head cut off. But it’s also perfect for one because you could make this on a Monday and have leftovers for the rest of the week. Plus, the chorizo, cream, and mustard makes it feel all sorts of fancy! All you need is a little bubbly and your favorite show, and it’s insta-relaxation time. Even if it’s on the ol’ leather couch.
