I've had a weird craving for paella for weeks now; I've finally gotten around to making some.

I bought the mussels frozen from the Korean market, but a lot of the shells were cracked, and they didn't open properly, so I felt vaguely unsettled about actually eating them. The recipe called for too much liquid, so the rice overcooked, and I didn't get the nice crispiness on the bottom like I should have. But the flavor was rich and saffron-y, and it made for a hearty meal.
