Yum! I've spent a lot of time in Spain, and I love paella. I don't recall it being all that heavy. I've never actually made it at home, although I actually own a paella pan. When in Rome, as they say... or Barcelona, buy a paella pan you will never actually use.. Go figure... something I decided I would make, "someday."

Oh, on topic. What were we talking about?

No waffles here, just bacon, garlic and penne pasta. That, and some onions, fresh basil from the garden, S&P and the usual suspects.

I basically cooked the bacon and veg stuff in a skillet, added a small amount of butter and olive oil, and tossed the pasta in. The basil went in last -- just long enough to make it wilt.

The USA seems to have a National Something Day for every day of the year.
"Let go of my Eggo"? Heh, this falls into the recent South Park episode about just what is news and what is "sponsored news."

Sounds good to me!
Some of these were created by advocacy and marketing groups, mostly in the '80s, apparently. But we seem to have Adrienne Sioux Koopersmith of Chicago to thank for most of them. She believes we should celebrate all the small moments in life.

We went out to see "A Star is Born" at a dinner theater last night. Loved the movie. DH had fish and chips and I had fried shrimp and onion rings. Good stuff.

Not a big waffle fan, as I love more savory breakfasts/brunches..although, I do remember eating them as a kid..my mother usually kept them in the freezer for us..but when I got old enough to fry my own eggs, that was it for Eggo's..

After our catastrophe of a meal out last night,
I'm making Meatball Parmesan with pasta.
Not sure which type I'll make, but let me tell you,
it will far surpass what we had last night!
