A few years ago, I decided to try to break out of my rut of cooking the same few dishes all the time – just to switch things up – and find more recipes to include in our dinner menu options. I think we were pretty successful – we now make anything from Pasta with sausage and veggies in it with garlic bread to Chicken Chili Rellenos to Chili to Honey Glazed Chicken Stir Fry.
Earlier this year, I was trying to think of more things I enjoy eating that we might want to add to our repertoire and I thought of things like Jambalaya, Risotto & Paella (are you picking up on the rice theme?). I looked up some recipes on Pinterest and came across this recipe for Mushroom Risotto that looked sooooo good!
I was a little worried about how laborious the process of making risotto would be, but it really wasn’t hard – you just have to pay it constant attention. I snapped a few pics along the way of cooking my mushrooms and my Arborio rice (lots of white wine and lots of stirring) and then the process of putting it all together.
I was a little worried about this when I set out to make it because I really wasn’t sure how the hubs would receive mushrooms or risotto. I think he was a bit iffy, but once he took a bite, it was all over. We didn’t even have left overs for lunch the next day – he ate it all! This is definitely something we will make again.
