I was barely up to cooking and so I let Ann decide what to do for dinner. She wanted red sauce with shrimp and mussels over pasta. Easy enough because I already had onions, tomato pulp, and a parsley-garlic slurry all ready for the paella that was not to be. I made the sauce (at which point Ann decided she wanted chorizo in it, so I put some of the paella chorizo in) and once it was nearly cooked, threw in the shrimp and mussels, covered the pan, and let the seafood steam on top of the reducing sauce.

It was really terrible. You might imagine that this would be a huge quantity for two people and you'd be right. I forgot to mention that we also had two 14-year old boys to help, and that this quantity is really but a pittance for them.
