Shrimp and Sausage Paella

Here we are in November already. Wow, this year has flown by for us.  Today was Doug's last day at work for all of this month.  He returns for about 2 weeks in December.   I will be taking time off near Thanksgiving and I guess we will plan something at home.  We had a bay side rental at St George Island but it was damaged so - reservations were canceled.

Here is a video of the place 2 doors down. :-(

Having cleared out the fridge I am now shopping less, keeping it fairly well cleaned out.  We have on hand what we want to eat for a week.  This is working out well.

On to the Paella.  This is an easy version, so many ways you can make this dish.

Stir frying up the onions, peppers, garlic and shrimp. Add sausage, spices, broth and rice.


Heat black beans and maybe fry up some plantains.   This is my plate below.  I mix everything, food touching doesn't bother me.


Doug's plate always looks neater, more photogenic.  He has the beans on the side.


Linking up with Beth Fish Reads for Weekend Cooking.

Great idea for some frozen shrimp (wild caught!) that are waiting for inspiration. I think both your plates are beautiful.

I have frozen shrimp too, I used some this week in an Asian style pho soup that turned out great.

Your paella looks so good. I like your 'mixed together' plate. I like my all food mixed together ;-)

Sorry to hear about your vacation rental--that flooding is so terrible.

Yikes on the vacation rental and the video. Wow. I don't mind my food touching, but I have friend who hates it.
