risotto

There was a time that cooking risotto seemed out of reach. For the life of me I can not imagine why I let it take on such a daunting air. Now I cook risotto quite regularly, especially since my husband gets big smile on his face when he knows it will be on the table.

The only thing to remember is that it is not a crock pot sort of dish. You must stay nearby at all times, stirring and adding broth. (Now that I think of it that was the daunting part.) Anyway, I've matured now and staying nearby is good.

And today I snipped some parsley from my herb garden and tossed it in for good measure.

I wonder if I have the correct rice for risotto. You have me craving risotto now. Is the parsley from your gardens already?

Blessings!

Looks great! I made risotto for the first time last year and found that my boys and I really love it. I don't mind the constant watch, because it is worth.

I love making a curry risotto and a creamy mushroom risotto.....that gets me thinking, I may just have to make some risotto for dinner.
