Make : Grow : Thrift

Each Monday you can link to a post on your blog sharing with us something that is handmade, homegrown, homemade (such as a recipe) or recycled/thrifted.

This does not need to be craft or sewing based. This is all about making our lives a little greener week by week.

I love Paella but had not ever made it until last night. Every recipe I read was different so I created a mish mash of all recipes to suit the ingredients I had in the cupboard.

Here's how I made it:
Saute1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic crushed, 2 sliced chorizo sausages, 1/2 a red capsicum diced
Add 1 tsp of Sweet Paprika, 1 tsp of Turmeric
Add 2 cups of rice.  I used basmati but next time will use arborio
Add a glass of wine and stir until rice is coated with all flavours
Slowly add the 1 - 1.5 litres of chicken stock like you would a risotto
5 minutes before rice is cooked add seafood - I used 1 kilo of seafood marinara from the deli. It included fish, prawns, mussels, salmon & calamari
Next time I will leave the calamari rings until the last minute to add.

 Did you have something that was Made : Grown : Thrifted this week? 
Please share below, we would love to hear about it. 

Don't forget you can also upload your photo's to The Haby Goddess facebook page.
