I deconstructed my paella a while ago. Then I thought of ways to use up the ingredients for more meals. I've settled on shrimp fried rice for lunch and sausage (chorizo), chicken and ravioli soup for dinner.
I'm like Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade, except the ingredients I'm starting with were actually homemade... semi-leftovers I guess

Interesting, pac. Separating the leftovers rather than eating leftover paella.

Yeah, I could have gone either way... maybe with the exception of the chicken thighs, but I've been itching to make "something" fried rice for a long time. Now I finally have not only the left over rice, but veggies mixed in with it. And some leftover shrimp. Poifect

Just got in from playing ball with my grandson. Then we get to watch the Red Sox in an afternoon game. I hope to develop an interest in the game.

Finished preparing enough dough to bake a 3 pound rye bread on Friday morning.

I took advantage of a dry day to spray for mildew and then scrub down the back fence in preparation for painting tomorrow. I bought a gallon of "mis-matched" paint at Lowe's for only $5. It's a fairly horrible shade of what we used to call oxblood. Good thing I'm the only one that will see it.

Do they still make men's coin loafers in that color? -- we used to buy a can of oxblood shoe polish for them. I liked the spit-shine part.

It is Anzac Day here today!

It is also a public holiday

We normally bake some Anzac biscuits but decided to buy some this year as the bakery makes them just right and ever so tasty

Just a relaxing day in for us today
