Veggie Paella

In hopes of making vegetables more interesting for my husband (and me) the past few weeks I have come up with a few new fun recipes.

One of the most fun for me was the veggie paella. I think I have had paella one other time in my life, my first week of college at University of Florida.

My parents took me out before they left me at the dorm, for my last yummy expensive meal before becoming a poor college student.

And I had the yummiest concoction of goodness called Paella. This week I attempted a veggie paella and hope to perfect it in days to come. If you have a fun paella recipe link/post it in the comments.
