I love weeks where there is a holiday. It makes the week go by either fast or extremely slow. This week is going by quickly! When I used to have a 9-5 job, those weeks are the toughest, as they dragged on and it took the weekends forever to arrive. Now that I’m a homemaker/food blogger, every day goes by fast!
I hope everyone had a lovely weekend! Chris and I were lazy pretty much all weekend long. I love those kinds of weekends! And since we were lazy, I made a simple risotto dish for dinner.
We are mushroom lovers so we really dig this wild mushroom risotto recipe. Now I know mushroom is an ingredient that most people either love or hate so if you are a lover like us, you’ll really love this dish. And this can easily be a vegetarian friendly dish —just swap out the chicken broth for veggie broth. Have a great week!
I didn’t start making risotto at home until a few years ago. I always thought it was a difficult dish to make. I saw an episode of 30 Minute Meals where Rachael Ray was demonstrating how to make it. While it is an easy dish, it certainly didn’t take 30 minutes! For me, it took about 45-50 minutes.
Chow mein is one of those dish that you can throw whatever meat or veggies you have on hand. I love ordering them at restaurants but I always feel guilty afterwards for eating it because of all the grease and MSG. When you cook it at home, it’s just so much healthier. Plus, they make wonderful leftovers the next day. Here’s my version of it.
