AS LONG AS WE BOTH SHALL EAT*

*And even if we don’t, for some reason. Shout-out to our pastor who mentioned Young Poor and Strangely Happy in the sermon at our ceremony! It was perfect…

So we’ve been married a week, and it’s AWESOME. Please excuse our CRAZY LOVEBIRD HAPPINESS but I think we’re allowed to have some at this point.

We’ll put together a full spread of wedding stuff eventually, but we’re enjoying spending time together- the internet can hear from us later.

🙂

Just for now, here’s what L made me for dinner:

Roasted Vegetable Risotto

GET:

-Rice (of some kind, fluffy, long-grain, white, brown, martian, whatever)

-a thing of asparagus

-2 carrots

-2 celery stalks

-1 small onion

-2 cups of chicken stock

-salt und pepper

-olive oil

-parmesan cheese

-lemon juice (opt.)

WHAT TO DO:

Preheat the oven to 350, or if it’s our oven, 15,000,000,000. But I’d go with 350.

Chop the vegetables into small pieces.

Toss them on a foil-lined baking sheet with some olive oil, salt, et pepper.

Put the vegetables in the oven for 15 minutes, or until they’re soft-ish and tasty-looking.

Put the 2 cups of stock in a pot and heat until boiling.

Dump 2 cups of rice into the stock, let it cook until it looks like, well, rice.

Toss the vegetables into the rice, with a healthy dose of the parmesan.

If you like, squirt a few drops of lemon juice in- it gives it a nice brightness, and counteracts the saltiness from the salt και pepper if need be OK BYE
