Risotto with mushrooms and leftover ham – 4 February 2013

D cooked a delicious risotto tonight.

He used the chicken stock he made when I cut the fat and bones and skin from the chicken thighs more than a week ago. He added some Cinzano which he said is a vermouth. Anyway, it was a wonderful meal.

He bought an Acme Upstairs Bread today, and I really enjoyed having it again. We had this bread the first day we ate breakfast in our house when we raised it up to two stories, and before there was a first story.

D chose a Trentatre Rosso that he bought on the weekend at Trader Joe’s. It was quite enjoyable.
