Paella

I’m spoiled 

At least my pallet is LOL. My first Paella in the 70’s was dining at Victor’s Cafe, how lucky can you get? 

This is a seafood paella, the recipe as many of mine; can be altered to your liking. For example, you may prefer adding mussels, on this particular day I didn’t. Serves 2-4 allow each a lobster tail LOL
