Paella

Paella 190

~ Mary ~

Every time we travel to Spain we try the Paella. Only once was it truly out of this world. I think it was because the company was stellar (Mick & Niki) and the wine was flowing freely. Most other times it just doesn’t hit the spot, so I interpreted it on my own terms and made it so I could do it on the stove top. It always makes a lasting impression, is great with a bottle of Spanish wine, and tastes even better the next day. Enjoy!
