The last week I have been MIA. No new recipes and barely any Facebook, Twitter or Instagram posts. Thank goodness I scheduled a few of those shares ahead of time, or I may have looked like I disappeared.

No worries – I’m not taking any kind of blogging break or long hiatus.

My poor pup Nero had to have knee surgery on Friday. He limped and limped around for weeks and eventually our vet decided he probably had a ligament tear and would need an operation to repair it.

I wish I had done more research or planned a little better because it has been a rough few days. An active dog who loves to run and jump, hence the knee surgery, is incredibly difficult to “contain”.

Once the heavy-duty pain killers wore off, he pretty much forgot that he had an invasive procedure a few days before and jerked and twisted at every loud noise.

The doorbell rang once when a delivery arrived – you would think bombs had gone off and he needed to protect us.

Mr. B and I found that the best way to get him to lay around was to lay around with him. So instead of cooking and photographing new recipes for the blog, I have been watching movies and clearing out my DVR and Netflix queue.

We still had to eat so I found time yesterday to make and photograph this one pot pasta recipe that I had been holding on to for a rainy day.

One Pot Buffalo Chicken Pasta

This one pot buffalo chicken pasta dinner is exactly what we needed this week. Not only is it delicious, it’s also easy to make. I had a batch of buffalo sauce in the fridge along with 4 leftover chicken breasts and both were calling my name.

I love finding new ways to use up leftover grilled chicken – this recipe has been added permanently to my leftover chicken list.

Just like with other one pot dishes I have made in the past, all of the ingredients for this one pot buffalo chicken pasta go into a large skillet at the same time.

Stir occasionally and before you know it, the chicken is warm and the pasta is cooked al dente (which is synonymous to perfect here at Casa de Honey y Birch).

So glad to hear that Nero is on the mend. It's hard to sit down and just rest with a sick one but those are memories that you want and need! We certainly missed you on SM but glad you got to clear out your DVR. Watch anything good? I need new recs for shows. I love those recipes that you saved up and can throw together at the last minute. This buffalo chicken pasta is right up my alley as I always have buffalo sauce on hand! Thanks Jenny and we are sending healing vibes to Nero. Hopefully you watched some good shows that Nero liked as well.. Something with car chases and lots of mailmen?
