    Found Art Tuesday July 10, 2007: LETTER

    There's something happening with my found art pieces, I've seen it for a while, they become something else than what I had envisioned while first designing them. For this week's topic of "letter" I wanted to make a postcard with some enlightening words from one stranger to another. Meaning: from me to someone I've never met. What could I tell a person like this? It was fascinating to explore. But the art had something else in mind. My mind started thinking about a saying in Spanish that says: Seguirlo al pie de la letra. (To follow something to the letter) I can translate it to do something following the instructions, or the rules. It made me think about a recipe. One I make every year for my husband's birthday (which was yesterday) I make him this Paella, a Spanish rice (from Spain) that he not only loves, but he actually concentrates on nothing else but eating it, savoring all the flavors in it. It's a complex thing to make, and has a list of ingredients longer than lent, BUT... I can tell you it's worth it. I've made it with different recipes, and the best paella I've made is a combination of all the recipes, and of course this also means more experience, learning to read how the ingredients are working together.... I love cooking, have I told you before? I just love it... So, for this found art I'm making a flyer, (the last one I made was for the Pocket Superhero) This time is a paella recipe. A Celebration Paella.



    I'm placing the file here as a PDF so you can download it too and maybe try cooking it. It is really worth a try!

    This is how it looks:

    I love paella. It is one of my favorite dishes. When I was in Spain (in 1992) I swear I tried paella in every town that I visited! I have a Spanish Tapas cook book as well as a Cook book of just Spanish cuisine. I have made Paella too! How fun!
