Paella Night!

When Pol was planning his trip to the US, we told him we'd love to have him cook some Spanish food while he was here, so he had his grandma teach him how to make paella.

He talked with her again on the phone after he got here, to get the recipe and instructions down on paper. Though my Spanish isn't great, I was able to make out most of the conversation, which mostly consisted of the words "wait" and "ok," repeated many times as she flew through the steps.

We were able to get most of the ingredients at whole foods (the only time in my life I've bought squid or mussels at the grocerty store). Then Pol took over all the cooking at home and put together a really amazing paella.
Stephanie, Arthur, and Jaisha came over and joined us to enjoy the meal. It tasted amazing - nice work, Pol!
