On Saturday night I TRY to cook something a little bit more special if we have time. We have been back from our holiday in Spain for two weeks now and the time has gone so fast. The weather has been up or down and on Friday and Saturday I began to wonder what had happened to our summer. I began to think back to the hot, sunny climate of Spain and how every meal was sat outside. The rest of the time being spent in the pool trying to cool down. Last Saturday I looked out of the window, seeing the rain lash down and felt a sudden need for something Spanish and holidaylike!
So what better than Paella? My hubby and kids never seemed to want to try the paella when we were away so I couldn’t have it unless we were somewhere that did individual portions! Last year on holiday in Ibiza I saw two blokes tucking in to a huge paella dish which was the side of a Sky Satellite dish!
At Alicante airport I went mad buying things in the Duty Free shop. Usually if I try to buy it in the supermarket with hubby watching I get the “What do you want that for?” but I wanted to buy some Turron to keep for Christmas. I spotted some paella rice and some pimenton so that was sneaked into the basket quickly.
