What’s Amy eating?

Written by amy on February 13th, 2014

These chilly, single digit temperature day just scream for something a little more substantial in my side items than basic rice and green salad.  On these days, I often find myself turning to risotto for a heartier addition to dinner.  Risotto may seem to be more time-consuming but it should not take more than 30 minutes to prepare. It does require a bit more attention so don’t try this on a night when you have “Mommy, can you help me with….” coming at you every five minutes.  I usually enlist the help of my rugrats when making risotto – adding the ladle of warm broth incrementally every few minutes is simple but busy enough for little helpers.

Tonight’s menu:

Roasted Chicken

Roasted root vegetables

Risotto with sautéed mushrooms and cherry tomatoes
