I really like posting about ethnic foods, don’t I? This shouldn’t
be an odd thing, honestly. We live in a nation that is the home of so
many different cultures that there is no excuse for not experimenting
with ethnic food. I actually know people who are completely unwilling
to try the foods of different cultures (aside from a taco) and I really
can’t understand that kind of closed-mindedness; and that’s all it is.
This weekend we were really busy! Luckily a few of our events were called off for FEAR of bad weather. The weather ended up being very nice and we enjoyed our productive weekend.Remember my little garden that I’ve been trying to get in?
I wanted Indian food tonight. I love Indian food. It is, without a
doubt, my favorite ethnic food. I love it so much that I wanted to

Now you can make these delicious pan-fried risotto cakes.They can be served as a main dish, on top of a salad, or as bite-sized hors d'oeuvres.
I can't think of anything better than standing over the stove (actually, I like to pull up a barstool), stirring a big pot of risotto, while my family chatters about their day and music plays in the background. It's all about creating an atmosphere of comfort and security. Nothing produces this feeling better than a steaming pot of belly-warming risotto. Yes, risotto takes a little extra time to cook, but the execution is simple.
