Pasta paella

Peg made a pasta paella  yesterday, with clams and shrimp.  Interesting you can have a saffron dish using pasta- a real thin pasta.  With the excess clams I made pasta with clams today.  They don’t call it a paella here, only rice with a bean called a garafon, chicken and rabbit is called a paella- there is never seafood in paella here.  And this is where paella was invented.
This weekend there is a ceramic fair in the Plaza de la Virgen and the city band plays and you can dance at 11.  PM that is.  You know what late owls the Spanish are.  At midnight there are, guess —- fireworks.  And more music and dancing.
These people know how to have a good time!

    OMG! I can taste it – the rich aroma is wafting right off my screen! It’s making my mouth water. Of course, anything you or Peg cook makes my mouth water. And of course, I miss you both and look forward to our next meal together, whenever that will be. In the mean time I’m imagining sitting and eating and talking to you.

  3. I’m really inspired together with your writing skills and also with the layout for your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to look a nice weblog like this one today..|
