Easy Spicy Seafood Pasta Recipe

Hi fellow foodies

How is everyone doing?  Wow!! we have come to the end of another month and a week.  This month went by so fast, there were days where I lost track of what day and time it was.  I sometimes had to look at my phone to double-check that it was  Monday, Tuesday, or whatever days it is.  The weather has been kind of crazy here, rain, windy, cold, and then a mini-heatwave.  pfff

I got the chance to sit in the garden and do some work early this morning.  There seems to be a lot of noise going on these past few months.  Most people are renovating their homes which means a lot of noise, from drilling, banging, sawing and of course, screaming. 

This is definitely not ideal since I work from home.  Working at home does have its ups and downs, but this is just going overboard  I have never heard this much noise these past two years working from home as I have these past 2 months.  I have to admit that I am quite upset because I had to cancel many lessons due to this situation.  I am not the kind of person who gets angry very easily, I do get upset but on Monday I was beyond upset I was furious!! 

There was so much noise that I could not hear myself nor the student.  I apologized to the student,  she understood and I had to end the lesson early.  I have lost count as to how many lessons I have canceled due to this situation. 🙁   So, to calm down I went to the kitchen and started cooking…This is my go-to de-stress activity.  I cooked up a storm that day, and the Spicy Seafood recipe was the first recipe I chose to prepare and a great choice for a chilly day. 🙂

In total, I made 4 different recipes on Monday, so I do have a lot more to post 🙂  That’s about it everyone and I am sorry for my ranting but I just needed to get it out there!!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!! 🙂

  1. Argh how frustrating! We have ‘nightmare neighbours’ who light bonfires and one of the guys is an opera singer (a very bad one) so we often catch a full rendition of that from him. If you shout over ‘shut up’ he just does it louder. But building works? We’re lucky that we don’t have that around here, so I’m very sorry you’re having to put up with it. It’s inconsiderate when people like yourself still have to work and need the quiet, not to mention that it’s just annoying full stop. Fingers crossed it’s all finished with the renovations soon..!!

      Hi Cazzz, Opera singers I think my students and I would enjoy listening too hahaha Thank you soooo very much for your support. I hope you are feeling better. Sending you huge hugs

  2. Oh no poor Sophie with the noise. It is frustrating to be sure. We have a person who loves to sit in his truck, windows down, music turned all the way up, and belting out the song that he is listening to. LOL BUT luckily there are always delicious recipes that you so sweetly post 🙂

  3. Living in a construction zone is the worst! ☹️
