The husband also decided this week that he is going to embrace some vegan way of living.. yep what the feck is wrong with the family... Mums making everyone go sugar free, now dad is embracing the power of the plant.. our poor kids! Well vegan is probably not the right word as he is still eating meats at dinner but he is using all plant extract ingredients and concoctions and making up some pretty crazy smoothies. These smoothies seriously smell like satan's bum but surprisingly are a huge hit with the 1 year old. So she turns her nose up at a lamb roast but will chug down a drink made with ginger, garlic, tomato, macca powder, kale and spinach... EWWWWW!!
Tonight I decided to make a lemon chicken risotto in the thermomix. The fact of the matter is, that anyone that owns a thermomix has to make a risotto to reach level one status of the cult.
It was so bloody good. Nothing about this risotto was bad (except for the seeds from the lemon juice I clumsily dropped in) Is it also a bad thing, that when I opened up the white wine to put in the risotto (that had <1gm of sugar) it smelt like angels breath and I wanted to chug down the whole bottle. Is it weird that I usually hate white wine unless it is a dessert wine because it is never sweet enough but this seemed perfect!! For the record I only licked a couple of drops off my hand... At least I know that when I hit up the races in a month, I might be able to drink wine.. (hangover come at me!!)
In my recipe section I included a lemon risotto that is made without a thermomix. I used the same ingredients, just cooked it in the thermomix.
Short and sweet tonight! Happy Tuesday x
