    It was delicious. The actual meat to rice ratio was higher than in the plated picture. Good contrast of textures and flavors with the various meat and cooking techniques. Made for good leftovers too.

    I almost didn't post this Timballo bacause it was such a fail coming out of the mold. But Mrs Hank saved it visually to some extent with a decent pic of the leftovers. I poached some chicken thighs and made a stock which I will used to cook the rice. I also made meatballs, half of which I...

    Rice and Spinach Tart I started with a few ounces of lardon and a leek, followed by garlic when the leek was softened. Then a pound of roughly chopped spinach. When that was cooked down I added rice and cooked with ladles of beef broth as you would a risotto. (I forgot to take photos.)...

    Risotto Omelet. The next day for lunch from the leftovers 3 or 4 cups of risotto, 2 eggs, parmisan cheese, parsley, tomato sauce. On low heat melt a fair amount of butter and place the mixture in the pan. The trick is to let it cook a long time rotating the pan to get an even crust...
