Dinner this evening, Little Boys Duck and Porcini sausages, served over a sage and lentil risotto.
On the drinks menu, a shot of tequila at the stove, and a glass of Pinot over dinner.
I'm liking this cooking thing at the moment. Earlier this week I cooked a smoked chicken risotto, adding some baby peas and a shot of Limoncello. The liqueur added a hint of sweetness to the chicken, and the whole combination worked extremely well.
Tomorrow I'm going to cook Thai chicken meatballs over coconut rice, and I'm planning a buttered chickpea (a vegetarian alternative to buttered chicken) meal with basmati rice for later on this week. Tomorrow afternoon I'll cook up a pot of curried kumara soup to have for lunch at work on Monday.
It was 8.5 degrees in the hallway all day. I kept warm by doing housework and not sitting still. The temperature could have something to do with my renewed interest in cooking!
