Clam Linguine

Reasons why I love Mr. Charming:

besides this lovely picture...

Yesterday afternoon (4:30pm-ish) I am at work trying to keep myself focused on an assessment project that has had me staring at the computer since 10:00am. I hear my phone buzz and momentarily stop to read these text messages...

"I have a mission for us."

Within the next few months we'll be moving to a new city, moving in together and doing lots of crazy things so I immediately became intrigued about what this mission would possibly be. Then I receive the rest of his thoughts.

"I have wanted clam linguine for like 2 years now. I looked at a recipe and it's too complicated for me."
...
"I say we team it up."

Upon reading the string of messages I cracked up out loud in my cubicle, which was probably the most noise in the office all day now that the academic year is done. I replied that we could definitely try it to which MC was extremely pleased. He cracks me up and I am grateful that he always does it when I need it most, I love that he loves the simple things in life, and I'm looking forward to adding a new 52 in 52 recipe with clam linguine. I looked up the Pioneer Woman's version which looks pretty dang good. Anyone out there have a fave recipe for the dish?

Y'all are moving in together? That's so exciting! Congrats!

And let me know how that recipe turns out - I've never cooked with clams! :)

Thanks, we're pretty excited :) I've never cooked with clams either, so it should be interesting but I'll definitely report back!
