Ay Paella !

For this week end, I am not asking too much, just a bit of music, something joyful to bid farewell to summer although we're still having a wonderful weather. As the Andalusians say, it is the quince summer, el verano de los membrillos.
well, a plate of paella would surely make me happy too....Rice, saffron, mussels, red peppers, gambas, green peas...it's all it needs and a big sarten (paella dish) of course and a couple of hours

and I guess while we're still in october, I could have one of those espeto de sardinas (sardins cooked on a stick)
and if time and work allow may be a stroll on the beach in Almuñecar....
Have a wonderful week end !

Oooh....that is a huge paellera!
Your pictures make me cry (well...happy tears!).
It is ridiculously wintry cold over here! I want to get cozy next to that outdoor fire!
Have a great weekend!

If I weren't so stuffed with eating all that chocolat --- I'd just dive into the paella!

Hope your weekend is perfect ...

That is a gigantic cooking pan! And the paella looks very delicious. Enjoy your summer memories weekend. It is summer here too today.

Sardinas!!! Qué ricas! I went to Almuñécar a couple of summers when I was a kid... it was fun!

Barcelona is quite cold at the moment... the weather changed so suddenly!

I love paella. My mentor, Maestro Salazar, spent his summers in Madrid and when he and his wife came home to California she'd make paella for dinner parties. Delicioso!

These pictures are so full of gorgeous "summer" light.

Just this summer, I had grilled sardines in Spain for the first time. They were a bit fiddly to eat, but I LOVED them!

Lala!!! so long...I get so happy when I visit your blog, you brighten my day... well, my night..
I was a little bit tired of this internet world so I had to take some rest from it... I´m back again.
I had a great paella last sunday, my oldest brother is a professional one cooking it... nothing better than a good and tasty paella!!! Did you know that most people in Chile are descendants from spanish people?, yes we are... ole!!
Un abrazo cariñoso

CIAO BELLA! these photos are amazing. That's what I like in your blog. Your description is interesting, funny but you put also soul photos (as I say), photos where you can see the soul of a place. Gracias.

Dios mio de mi vida, creo que me voy a morir de hambre! The first time I had paella was in Alzira, Valencia, in the house of my friend Felicidad. One of the happiest meals I have ever had!
Gracias for bringing back los recuerdos.
Saludos
