I think risotto is one of my favorite foods. It is full of wonderful cheesy-creamy goodness. Yes, it takes a lot of patience to cook, but it’s not actually that difficult. We made this pretty simple, just with some garlic and butter to saute the rice with at the beginning. We added in some Portuguese sausage with the Parmesan cheese and topped it all with some young scallions from the garden. Delicious!
We also had a salad featuring home grown lettuce. Nothing is better than eating the food you grew yourself!
And yes, that is a beach themed paper plate. I’m moving in a few days (actually, this meal was an effort to use up food, like that 8 cups of chicken broth in the freezer!) and all of the real dishes are packed! Crafty-ness might be slim for a while since I had to box up all of my supplies yesterday. I did allow myself to keep out one grocery bag full though – I’d be lost without them!
