Wonderful Fathers, Wonderful Memories

I passed by Talin Market the other day and remembered all the times I’d go shopping there with my dad to find all the perfect ingredients for his famous paella.  He loved grocery shopping.  I got my love of grocery shopping from him, I suppose. Even though he…
