I made a not-risotto tonight. I don’t have risotto rice, to start with. Just made some rice in the microwave oven, where it never sticks to the bottom, and then transferred it to a pot and added about a pound of frozen mixed vegetables, a clove of garlic and half an onion chopped up, half a pound of frozen meat, and six strips of streaky bacon cut into 1″ segments. Salt, “half-salt,” oregano, HP sauce, and ketchup so it wouldn’t be too bland. It was not bad and certainly easy to make. I just stirred it a few times. There was just enough left over for lunch tomorrow.
