While the cats away….
The mice will… listen to heavy metal music, play computer games, drink beer and feast on seafood.
The closest we ever came to breaking up was very early on in the piece, I offered Stace a prawn from the dish I was eating… and she said
"Sorry, I don't like seafood"
I was taken quite a back, my mind starts to pulse.. "You don’t like seafood?" what if this become serious a life with out seafood, no prawns, oysters, crayfish, muscles, panic sets in.. I calmed down, I knew I could eat seafood when ever we went out. It would be ok, I could still eat it at home, we just wouldn't eat it together. I was ok with this, time passes and we move in together. It was great, fun times, many laughs, and lots of romantic misunderstandings. But no seafood in the house.
Stace is currently up with the out laws celebrating Wool Week in her home town. SO it has been nothing but heavy metal, beer and Seafood Paella.
In order to make a good paella. Firstly crank the heavy metal to full volume, a good selection should involve, Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot, Korn, Anthrax, Machine Head, Cradle of Filth, and some Rammstein to be fully multi cultural.
Open a bottle of Carlton draught, and shuck a half dozen oysters, these should be enjoyed over 20 mins or so. Oysters may only be served natural, Kilpatrick should be banned under international law, as it destroys the natural flavour and texture of the oyster.
For the paella, in the pot, add 3 cups of fish stock, one cup of water, and a teaspoon of saffron. Heat over medium to medium-high heat. Open and consume a beer.
In a frying pan, add a table spoon of olive oil, cook fillets of firm white fish but into 2 cm cubes until golden turning after a minute. Take fish from the pan, place it on plate.
TO the frying pan add a little more oil, slice onion, 2 cloves of crushed garlic, cook until the onion is soft and clear. Add two cups of rice, a can of diced tomatoes and a teaspoon of paprika. Add half of the fish stock mix to the frying pan, shake the pan to allow the solution to filter through the rice, cook uncovered on medium heat for 10 mins or until the solution is absorbed.
Add a hand full of green prawn cutlets, rings of squid, and several de bearded muscles to the mix push them into the rice mix, keep adding the fish stock mix at five minute intervals, half a cup at a time, until you run out of mix, approx 25 mins…. Add the fish and half a cup of frozen peas. Open and consume a beer.
Allow to stand for 5 mins, serve with fresh black pepper and beer.
The final step is cleaning up the mess you made before she gets home, which is in approximately 5 hours….. wonder how much I can fit in the cupboard?
