This evening we made Lemon and Artichoke Risotto with Shrimp [recipe] which is, as you may have guessed, another risotto recipe, again a variation of the dog food risotto. What can I say about this dinner? Well, it was a risotto with artichoke hearts and shrimp and lemon zest. And there were peas in it, hallelujah. It was perhaps the best risotto that we’ve had this week, in as much as the peas were supposed to be there, rather than added by me to make the food more appealing. The artichokes gave the meal a bit of a zing, which was very welcome, but even that couldn’t cut across the bland same-yness of this meal. Too stodgy by far. It was nice to have shrimp though; it’s been a while. All in all, yet another meal that will not be appearing in this house again anytime soon, er, ever.
In other news we are the family of lurgy. Everyone now has something to complain about in the cold/ sore throat/ cough stakes. So really my other news is that there is no news. Tomorrow we will be making Cream Risotto with White Asparagus and Andouille. And because these risotto meals aren’t white enough already, let’s add a freaky looking white vegetable. Great plan.
