Makes My Monday: Perfect Paella & Fantastic Friends

One of my bestest gal-pals from college, Mrs. M also happens to be an amazing, amazing cook. When we told the kids she'd be coming down from Northern Virginia not only for a Palm Sunday visit, but to make us a meal, the culinary countdown began.

The supper was sensational, many memories made. As she was leaving, she passed a package to Scott and me...with the words that our good friends in the DC area wished they were closer---particularly now----and off she drove. The love of long-time friends Makes My Monday.
