Not much to tell...

Busy week... busy kids...a birthday party this weekend to plan...many teenage girls staying over...It should be fun...or something like that...

I made dinner, it was really really good.


1 medium Onion chopped
4 tbsp Butter
5 cups Chicken Broth - approx. amt.
1/2 cup white wine
2 cups Aborio rice
Salt and Pepper to taste
Zest of 1/2 lemon
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan

Peel and chop the onion.  Melt the butter in a large sauce pan.  Add onion and cook till soft and translucent.  Mean while in seperate pot heat chicken broth to gentle simmer.  Once the onion is soft, add the rice and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes.  Adjust the heat as necessary. 
Ladle in the chicken broth about 1/2 cup at a time, stirring constantly.  As liquid is absorbed ladle in more broth.  Con't this till you have used most of the broth, about 20 minutes.  Rice should be tender when tasted but not mushy.  Add 1/2 cup wine if desired, lemon zest and parmesan cheese. 
I added leftover cooked chicken and veggies.

Elvis had a run in with the girls and some underwear...
