Welcome 2016 with PAELLA!

We welcomed 2016 at the Gonzaga Residence in Muntinlupa.  Our share for the feast—Seafood Paella! I got the recipe from Panlasang Pinoy. My trusted site for delicious recipes. I tweaked mine a bit, replacing some ingredients, instead of clams I used mussels instead. I also put green & red bell peppers on top as garnishings, i put sliced boiled egg to make it more mouth-watering 🙂
