Risotto Heralds the Coming Of Autumn
September 21, 2010 § 3 Comments
Cue the trumpets – Fall is Here! It’s a funny thing – as I download the photos I took yesterday, I realize that I forgot to take any of the finished dinner. Huh. The ingredients mesmerized me. I was too busy swooning over the wild mushrooms and nutty parm to stop and photograph the end result. But we did cook risotto yesterday, and I thought it was delicious. If it was your dinner last night, I hope that you enjoyed it. Yesterday’s meal was a tribute to the new season – those earthy chanterelles, red wine, and parm in the risotto. Creamy goodness.
The salad was a mix of greens, smokey bacon bits, crunchy apple, and pecans. The pecans were tossed in brown butter & salt and they are totally addictive! JM & I grazed through our portions before we made it home. They would make an excellent addition to a batch of mixed nuts. My thoughts are turning to holiday entertaining… Dig out the cornucopia!
