The Holidays slayed my dishwasher. Actually, its death was a result of a combination of different events …. but I’m not going to tell you what they were because it’s too embarrassing. But anyway, here I sit with dishpan hands and ragged cuticles, not so patiently waiting at the mercy of the installer as he takes his sweet time delivering my brand new magical pot-scrubbing machine, scheduled to take place some time this coming Saturday. Which is five days from now. So, long story short, I’ve been looking for recipes that don’t require messing up too many pots and pans these days. This recipe is just the thing; it’s simple, it’s fast, and it hardly dirties any pans. Minimal chopping, minimal cleanup. But best of all, it’s unbelievably yummy and kids love it.

Asparagus & Wild Mushroom Risotto

Posted on April 10th, 2012 by Leah Damron

Easter dinner was so delicious, but I’m about over ham, how about you? I intentionally overshot on the poundage, wanting to have leftovers. Well, leftovers we got. Had a ham sandwich for lunch yesterday. Put slices of it on egg sandwiches this morning. Easter dinner re-run last night. And there are still a few little scraps left in the fridge … the frugal cook in me should stash them away in the freezer for omelets or soup but I’ll admit I’ve been sneaking them to the DamDog. I’m swearing off ham. Tonight we’re having a meatless entree, and this is what it is.
