The Kid is back at school and The Girl is down for a nap, so I was forced to take a break from working on that room. Before I go start on the sink full of dishes, I wanted to share this recipe.
I had no intention of posting this dinner. I didn't take any pictures while I was cooking. Then I tasted the risotto in the pan when it was almost finished. Then I knew, it must be shared with the world. Okay, a bit dramatic, but it was really, really good.
I had an open bottle of Champagne from NYE left in the fridge, so when I saw this recipe, I was all over it. It came from a blog I read on a regular basis. Click here for the recipe.
I didn't have any dried mushrooms, so I had to skip that part and just use the fresh. I also had open containers of both chicken and beef stock in the fridge, so I mixed the two, rather than just using chicken. Other than that, I stuck to the recipe.
To go with it, I made Chicken Paillard, Roasted Brussels Sprouts With Pears, and mixed greens with pecans, oil and vinegar. Deeeeelicious dinner.
Here it is on my plate:
Off to those dishes....
