French Soup & Paella

Post by housil » Wed Jun 22, 2011 2:00 pm

Today Mrs Housil is still and work and the kids deceided better to push McDonalds economy, I opened a french RCIR for dinner.

Instant soup and a Spainish fisch/rice dish called "paella"

Actually I like soups, but making soup in the fields on a e.g. ESBIT or tommy cooker is too inconvenient to me as you have to cook water etc...

It says "pomme der terre" = potatoes on the pouch, but
The soup was "nice", a nice nick-nack in the fields, but not a must have.

The main course
you could recognise the sea food ingrediens

The rice was still firm to the bit
and it had a nice sea food taste.
As there are not this much "fish" dishes with the rations, I liked it.

Nice review Olli... :D
Paella is an nice dish from the Spanish cuisine. There are several types....Valenciana, "Marinera" y "Mixta". Valenciana has no seafood, "marinera" has mainly seafood and "mixta" well it has both regular meat and seafood.

Looks interesting and nice review. If only the Spanish rations had more food variety in them, they'd be even better.
