Dupont Circle Farmer's Market and Paella

It seems like only a fortnight ago we were talking about how warm this winter has been, now I have no doubts that it is Winter and it is February. We were starting to get cabin fever and was time to get out and visit some places about town - Dupont Circle Farmer's market my favorite Farmers Market seemed like a good outing, stock up on the week's groceries, get some exercise and also sample some Paella that the chefs from Jaleo were going to cook up in the giant pan. We were all glad that we went. The kids had fun running around sampling the fresh fruits - apples, cheeses,cider and ofcourse the Paella. I had fun shopping some good produce potatoes, greens, apples.

Every cusine has its version of Briyani like New Orleans Jambalaya and Spains Paella. Even with the frigid temperatures there was a crowd to watch the Paella being cooked.

Baked Goodies

Paella in the Giant Pan
This was one of the yummiest Paella we have ever tasted. It was great watching the Paella being cooked and everyone got ample to sample.
