  1. What great note paper.
  2. The ingredients for a classic paella.  Hola paella.  This is a one meal shopping list belonging to somebody who enjoys cooking and probably goes shopping often through the week rather than doing one large weekly shop.
  3. What is app?? Apples or something a bit more high tech?
