Risotto, and a dessert.

Nearly ready!

Last night's risotto, which I made with arborio rice, red onion, garlic, white wine, vegetable stock, parmesan, fresh parsley, dried porcini, dried mixed mushrooms, and fresh shiitake mushrooms. 

When it was finished, it looked like this. It was really quite good, as my wife said so.

I've only just noticed that the spoon in the parmesan is one that was given to our son when he was a baby.

Yes, I really did make a dessert!

Nothing particularly fancy, really. Orange ice cream from a recipe by Nigella Lawson. One of Mr Tesco's meringue nests, and some tinned mandarin segments.
