Spanish Eggs and Hash

Spanish Eggs and Hash

There’s no denying that I have always had a thing for Paprika. I could never explain it. It just seemed natural. You know…one of those things that just makes sense. Over the years I have discovered that there was a seemingly endless variety and just when I thought my search had plateaued, I found a Spanish market in Miami. Goodness, gracious!  Or maybe I should say Goodness, Gracias…cause this stuff is actually that good! It has me thinking of how I can get to Spain, just to try it fresh…thoughts I have never considered prior to this. I feel like the girl in Everything, Everything, who discovered her desire to venture out. Well, since my travels to Spain are purely contingent on my existing funds, I had better just stick with traveling through food.

The paprika that I found is fragrant and oh so delicious. If only the internet could emit odors…er um fragrances. Yeah, then maybe you would love Paprika as I do. I purchased this brand in-store. Pimenton El Angel
