Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a great weekend.
My weekend was very busy. Time spent at the garden centre, supermarket, baking, walking the dog and a lot of work over at the allotment. Mum and I were up at six on Sunday morning to dig woodchip from a pile that had been left nearby and ship it to the allotment. We made four trips and got so much done. But it left me wondering when I was going to get time to make the Martha Mondays pick.
I love risotto. Love it. Mum often makes a plainish one with onion and we have it with sausages and vegetables for dinner. I love it. And this risotto did not disappoint. Whilst some of my friends think that it is difficult to make, I find that it isn’t difficult just time consuming. I managed to get not one thing done whilst I was making dinner, every few minutes adding more stock to the rice.
I made two changes. I used pancetta slices instead of bacon and I put the peas into the risotto earlier than the recipe called for. I think they would have still been too hard if I had put them in at the end.
I made the full batch and have a container ready for work on Monday. No doubt I will eat it cold – the best way!
