A few months ago I started compiling a weeknight menu booklet for our family. It seemed like every day around 1:30 (nap time around here), I would start to ponder what to do for dinner. I am not a plan-ahead-girl when it comes to meals (as much as the mister would like me to be). I am trying to do better, though. I manage a crock pot meal or two, here and there. I think meal planning should be listed as a spiritual gift in the Bible, then I would be validated in saying it is not something the Lord has blessed me with. Alas, I will have to keep working on this part of domesticity.
Tonight, I made a little risotto recipe that will definitely make it into my booklet. I found it through a general search over on Allrecipes. Not having all the ingredients (uh, that would have taken some preparation), I improvised. Oh boy. So yummy. Seriously. I think most people make risotto as a side or appetizer, not me. Full on meal, here.
Here is the recipe I ended up with after some minor changes were made:
Give it a try! It is lemony and rosemary-y and all around, scrumdiddlyumptious! I can attest that the two kiddos loved it. Happy Eating!
