This week, H. and I ventured into the world of Cooking-Pots-Of-Somethings-For-An-Unknown-Length-Of-Time-To-Produce-Unknown-Results.
Or more simply put: we decided to try recipes we've never tried before.
Risotto has always been a great mystery to me. I grew up in a household where cooking rice was only a matter of closing the lid and pushing the right button. Rice served as an accompaniment, but never the main course itself. And what was with all of this stirring?
Moreover, a failed risotto experience from the past made me doubt that the highly praised "Arborio Rice" could produce anything other than a sticky yet crunchy mess.
I was more than happy to be proven wrong.
H. and I asked, and the Risotto delivered excellent results!
We opted to omit the peas,
And double the spinach. Hoorah!
(Sorry for the horrid picture lighting.)
Comfortingly gooey and delicious.
H. and I supped well that evening.
Later in the week, we decided to roast the leftover heirloom baby tomatoes and use them in Frittata.
Even though the above picture looks rather unappetizing, the Frittata broiled beautifully,
And again, we had another splendid supper.
