Day 31: Celebratory Risotto of Moving Success

31 Jan

WE HAVE OFFICIALLY MOVED IN TO THE NEW APARTMENT! All our stuff’s here, we’re sort of settled, and most importantly, we have internet! So in celebration of this momentous occasion, we cooked our first official homemade meal in the new place: Cheesy Mushroom Risotto. And I’ll show you how we made it.

We went to the market and bought the ingredients: risotto, mushrooms, onions, olive oil, cheese, and secret herbs and spices.

The photo on the left shows me chopping onions. The photo on the right shows what happens to me when I chop onions.


Step 1: Chop everything.
Step 2: Heat oil in pan.
Step 3: Sweat onions then add risotto.
Step 4: Add mushrooms.
Step 5: Add some water and secret herbs and spices. Boil until most of the water is absorbed by the risotto. Mix occasionally.
Step 6: When it has achieved an arroz caldo-like consistency, drown the thing in cheese (which I normally don’t like but it worked out pretty well in this dish.)

Step 7: Get your adorable sister to pose with bowl of Celebratory Risotto.

And done! See you tomorrow!
