This is a meal and some tips, especially for the younger members here who are college bound. Today I cooked Sallent's World Famous Poor Man's Paella. This is a recipe I would whip out in college when I wanted to impress a girl, but was too short on cash to take her anywhere or to do anything elaborate. The ingredients are: 1. A pocket of yellow rice mix stired into 3 cups of boiling water in a large frying pan with a lid. 2. The cheapest frozen shrimps you can buy. 3. The cheapest imitation crab you can get. 4. The cheapest can of sea food shunks you can find (calamari, squid, or whatever). 5. Some "Complete seasoning", a dash of lime juice, and a dash of olive oil. 6. Cook for 20 minutes or so (until rice is soft but not too dry). Here is the finished product... I would have the table set nice, serve my date a glass of the cheapest Argentinian red wine I could find that was of drinkable quality (usually a $5 bottle). My date would see that I could cook, though I would hide some of the process from her. TIP: Don't let her see you using imitation crab, and play up the quality of the wine. Most people can't tell good wine from cheap but still drinkable wine anyways. I'm telling you, this and a movie date in the couch after the meal, got me a lot of compliments and kisses, etc., and all for about 25 to 30 minutes worth of effort, and a budget under $20. It shows you are house trained, thoughtful, and talented. Try it out on your college date once, thank me later. Man, it felt good to whip up an old favorite that I hadn't prepared in years You know what the sad part is, this recipe ends up tasting just as good as 95% of paellas I've eaten in restaurants out there. Anyway, here again is my latest Nero.
