    This one was easier @dlk7. Just thought I'd try something different.

    That looks amazing.
    It's not a science, it's an art. And it's flawed.

    Paella on the naked whiz website. Just have everything sitting in place and ready. I imagine you could come up with a lot of different combinations. The crawfish tails were frozen wild and the whole were cooked/frozen... And yes, they sucked. Merely for looks. I would use more okra next time. I highly recommend the rice/veggie trial run. I did miss the scallops.

    Once you get the paella basics down it's a lot of fun to experiment. That looks delicious!
    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
