Yes, I am posting for the umpteenth time today, what of it?

Finished junkyard risotto. Originally uploaded by Siddity.
And I'm not even off today. I just have this much down time.

So I didn't order in. I made risotto. My first, don't you know.

Matt over at Abstract Gourmet just looooooves risotto. That, and sticking his favorite sausage into everything. Just so happens I had both key ingredients, a hunk of free time, and instructions for risotto prep straight from Le Cordon Bleu!

It also happens I had written a long, lovely post about this, complete with recipe, but it was apparently so fucking delicious that Blogger ate it. So. You get a pic and to use your imagination.

Oh, it was quite tasty. I followed it up with a hot cup of pear white tea tarted up with rosewater and wildflower honey. A divine finish to the meal--a mild, sweet counterpoint to the rich, savory risotto.

Blogger ate it - too funny. I love risotto but can't for the life of me make it. My arm gets tired.

I think rules of etiquette forbid me from commenting here... But seeing as i've been so dubiously embellished so far I thought i'd better give this dish my seal of approval.

This is a lovely first effort.

Hopefully you'll find the recipe again once blogger is done digesting it.
