Me "What day is it today?"
Mr E "Thursday"
Me "Okay, but what date?"
Mr E "?......"
Me "It's OK, I'll look it up on the computer - phew the 13th. That means I'm not late for posting my Daring Cooks' paella"
Cue an evening of NOT writing the post, because it's OK, I could do it the next night.
Yet somehow, it's now the 16th, and I'm posting my paella more than a little bit late!
Our Daring Cooks' September 2021 hostess was Inma of la Galletika. Inma brought us a taste of Spain and challenged us to make our very own delicious Paella!

I'm really not a big fan of seafood, so I followed the veggie paella recipe, using up the goodies from our weekly veg box from East Coast Organics - carrot, courgette and cauliflower.
It took all my willpower not to keep stirring it, but on the exhortation of the recipe, which was reinforced by the shop assistant in the ever-bountiful Real Foods shop where I bought my rice and saffron, I exercised restraint and willpower and avoided the potential pitfall of making paella flavoured risotto, which would be a very easy trap to fall into.
