Here's the plan, I want to cook paella tonight, (this afternoon), using my outdoor DO. It's not very big, but I'm not serving a crowd, either. I was inspired by a new natural chorizo, fully cooked, that I saw in a local, family owned, very small grocery store. I picked up that, along with some chicken thighs, and rice. Now I know that opinions differ, but I picked basmati, because I adore it. I also can't afford the saffron, so I'm missing a key component. It was $23 at the regular grocery store. I need to go back out and pick up peas, forgot them... so I'll check another place.
I also picked up some shrimp that were on sale, shell on "easy peel" raw frozen. I bought a small box of chicken stock, to use as liquid, with a can of crushed tomatoes. Red peppers were on sale today, too, so picked up a couple of them as well.
I got onions and chilies at Farmer's Market Saturday.
I may try this over charcoal in the DO. It's not a big one, so will need to be careful about not making more than the DO can handle. Kind of a tending, cooking, all afternoon thing. Could top it off with a stroll and a cold one at the downtown FM tonight!
