"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Use a 3 quart casserole with lid. Heat oil in casserole. Saute onion and green pepper until transparent. Add garlic, parsley, tomato, bay leaf, nutmeg, cumin, and thyme. Mix well, cover, and cook over low heat until mushy (about 15 minutes). The saffron should be toasting on the lid in a little brown paper.

Add the shrimp to the saute and cook until it turns pink. Dissolve the saffron in the 1 cup hot water. Combine with wine, lemon juice, salt, and hot sauce. Pour into casserole, stir to mix, and cook covered for 10 more minutes. Now add the rice and the 21/2 cups of water. Distribute ingredients well in casserole. Bring to a quick boil, stir once, and place in preheated 325 oven for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven, uncover, and garnish with peas, and parsley. Pour beer over all. Cover again and allow to stand 15 minutes longer, before serving.
