With a new baby come new traditions. Andrew and I have celebrated our own Christmas Eve on the 23rd for the past 8 years. This year we decided to start making paella for our little celebration. I hope Lukas likes shellfish! The recipe came from our Williams Sonoma Barcelona cookbook. I wish I could track down some squid ink to make a black rice paella or replicate the rabbit paella I once ate on the beach in Valencia. Or perhaps I just wish I were in Spain. Ten years ago this Christmas my parents and Janet came to visit me while I was living abroad in Spain. I am feeling a bit nostalgic about that Christmas this year - how can a whole decade have passed so quickly? And when did I get so old?
