Photos are Deceiving

More adventures from the kitchen! We made paella for our Spanish potluck on Sunday. Lookie! Doesn't it look sooo yummy? The assortment of colors, the anticipation of yummy seafood ... We added pork, chorizo, mussels, shrimp, chicken thighs, squid, artichokes, peas. We sure had high hopes for this dish.

Our Paella

Ahh but you must see this coming given the post title. The dish was a disaster because we didn't finish cooking the rice before we left the house. The rice got all mushy and over cooked in the car ride over. :( Our poor tortured friends got to eat this concoction haha ... oh well we'll make it up next time.

Hrmmm I feel like making yam cake this weekend. Haven't had this in ages! *Dreams of yam cake with chilli ketchup*

Yam Cake ... MMMMM (in voice of Homer Simpson)

Agree with the Spanish Porridge concept! You need to think laterally in these situations right?
