Good call (again).
I just read some topics on this and the biggest worry about a non-traditional paella pan is the residual heat. I'll opt for my SS saute pan instead of my CI skillet.

i just love it when pac wakes up eager and ambitious to cook. he can lead me by the nose and spellbound in his kitchen, with occasional peeks and whiffs of the spanish paella he is making, as a reward.

(pac,i see you finally found a store that sells chorizo) :)

It is Monday morning here, pretty chilly, had a great sleep snuggled in the quilt

Today I am heading over to mums for a chat, as she just returned from a week at Kangaroo Island yesterday, so lots to talk about and then I am going to go and buy Steve and I a new electric toothbrush each, they are meant to be better technology than the original Oral B ones, so we will give them a go

The new Giant Eagle is great! I believe they are trying to be more like Wegmans. Lamb, bison... all kinds of stuff, including their store brand of chorizo. Even two choices for the saffron.

And I'm eager to cook because it seems like I'm heading into a cooking rut again. I need to come up with something like my PPPC to energize me and lead me down different cooking paths. It seems like I've been making the same old things lately.

"What am I doing?" Drooling at the thought of Pacanis' Paella! I too feel like I am in a rut.....DH would rather eat simply most of the time....grilled fish, meats, or meatloaf, boiled or mashed potatoes, plain rice, steamed veggies or spaghetti, lasagne or fettuccini Alfredo. I sometimes crave something more exotic or international. He will eat it, but doesn't understand why I want dinner to be so labor intensive. The answer is I LIKE to cook!!!!

Absolutely! I LOVE to cook! It's so much fun, just wish I could eat everything I want...but I like having my heart beat just a little bit more at this time.

So you are multi tasking

I hope I'm making paella. Right now it looks like a saute pan with a lot of stuff in it
I have no idea how I'm going to move a portion onto my plate
