Paella - Take 2, among other things...
Tonight for dinner, we made paella in our 'new' paellera with REAL saffron - both straight from Spain! It was very good - although we still need to do a little bit of tweaking. We can't get the chorizo right - it always crumbles. Also, we'd like to crisp up the rice a bit at the end. Suggestions welcome.
The above photo was Ben's birthday present. I had it printed (www.photoatlarge.com) 6ft by 1ft and then framed at Michael's. We hung it in the kitchen, above the dining table, and I love it. He took the photo when in England over Christmas. It's of Newlyn Harbor, and his parents house is on the far right, so cool!
In other news, tomorrow we're 37 weeks - and 'fully cooked'! That means Peanut Porter wouldn't have to go to the NICU automatically. Check-up on Wednesday, so we'll see how we're doing.
