Noodles & Olives Dinner
For dinner tonight I had some .79€ noodles (like ramen noodles) with corn. I also threw in some olives and cashews for good measure.

Spring Rolls & Cauliflower
Spring rolls on top of cauliflower that I attempted to mash, unsuccessfully. Still good though.

Dried Veggies
A snack of dried peas and corn and what I think were lentils. Surprisingly decent.

These are buñuelos (fritters). A stand popped up the other day outside of my apartment and I think it’s a temporary thing for Fallas. They sell these fritters in the evening to people walking home from work, or to people, like me, walking home from the grocery store. They’re pretty much just fried dough sprinkled with sugar.

Eggs and Fries
Tonight’s scrumptious meal. Eggs and ham bits, french fries and bread. Potatoes are vegetables, right? Of course they are! (Just kidding!)

Cashew Salad & Fried Ham and Cheese
Here’s a cashew salad and fried ham and cheese slabs I had one day this week. I had some Don Simon brand orange juice with it. I feel like I’ve seen that brand in the U.S. but I’m not sure. Does anyone know?

Lunch today:

February 21, 2009

For dinner Tonight I had paella. It had shrimp and calamari in it (hence the name paella marisco/seafood paella, pronouced pie-yay-ah). I’m sure it wasn’t as good as what I could get at a restaurant here in Valencia, but I figured I’d give it a try. After watching the Valencia episode of PBS’s Spain… On the Road Again I had to have some paella. Maybe this week I’ll try some real paella.

I also had a walnut salad. I wasn’t able finish the salad and paella and didn’t touch the bread in the photo. Just a little paella is filling.
