Dinner and other assorted domestics...

Today I baked.

The end.

Just kidding! But honestly, a week ago a round of baking would have been enough to make me take a nap. It would have been an entire day's activity. Today, I not only baked (for those who are interested, these cookies courtesy of Whisk and Whimsy), I went for a walk, I entertained a friend and her two daughters (4 and 2, although Max and Millie really were their entertainment), I did some research for the house and I had a chat with a friend over skype.

I'm now preparing to make saltimbocca and risotto for our dinner. Now that the evenings are getting colder I feel more like comfort food. And given Mr K says he still doesn't know how to make risotto, I guess the onus falls to me to prepare dinner!

This week seems to be packed! I'm planning a movie out with Mr K at some point, an adventure with a friend on Wednesday, more baking and morning tea with another friend on Thursday morning and then out to do some chores and run errands with Mr K on Friday. Back on the horsie indeed!

Definitely sleeping in on Saturday methinks!

I know what you mean about the cooler weather bringing out the desire to bake. I don't think I ever lost the weight from last winter's puddings though :(

Dear Miss Kitty-Cat, Risotto is just the ticket for an Autumn evening. Thank you for reminding me of its pleasures. You are sounding happy. Good for you! Lindaxxx

I am waaaay too lazy for risotto. I just can't handle the committment of standing there stirring all that time.

How was it?

I adore risotto- plenty of white wine and mushrooms seems to do the trick for me. A sleep in on sat sounds dreamy. Soooo tired and seems to always happen when Autumn creeps in! x

FF - will do, but please don't stress!

Kiki - I don't think I did either!

Linda - I am much better an happier! Risotto is awesome.

Lady Smaggle - I find the stirring very therapeutic but know plenty of people don't... Have you tried Baked Risotto? http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/16978/oven+baked+risotto It does remove a lot of the effort and still tastes pretty good...

Sophie - I love mushroom risotto as well, but Mr K really likes it as a side dish so we often just go plain. But asparagus is also good...
