        See, Goober can be good and say something nice (even if it has to be about his mother to bring it out)

          Well, I, for one, think Goober is sweet! Rock on, Goober.

      2. Toronto isn't exactly a hotbed of Spanish cuisine of any description. But Segovia on St. Nicholas St. does serve Spanish fare, including paella.

          I've found Segovia's paella to be excruciatingly salty. That's a shame, because it's good otherwise (generous amount of seafood, properly cooked rice, etc).

        2. I find it a joy to make. What I mean is only ONE pan. A knife, measuring stuff and the freshest ingredients are all else needed.

          Sometimes I do it on the gas grill. Grill the chicken, Sausages etc. and pop them into the paella pan full of rice etc. Cover with foil , and bake in the grill.

          Again, minimal equipment and cleanup.

            Sure Paella is easy if you don'ty run around to get the required small quantities of 5 types of shellfish.

          2. So easy to make yourself... You don't even need special baking dishes, if you don't want to.
            I have a couple of very good recipes. Interested? Email me!
