go Venus and Serena!

Other than Safin, they're the only players I care about in the French Open, since Blake lost. I'm hoping Serena crushes her bracket :D

update on the risotto

Well, the rice cooker risotto was less than a success. I added too much water and it was quite mushy. And lacking a convenient source of chicken broth, I put in half water and half broth which of course resulted in a very mild flavored risotto. When adding the parmesan cheese, I noticed that the expiration date was October... of last year. Whoops! Gotta buy more. I really haven't been cooking much, haha.

The microwaved capellini turned out much better. I'm going to experiment with various sauces. I love capellini. Yummy and so quick to cook.

Now I'm tired from cooking. I'll give it another try next month.

things to cook

Day one of being healthier!

Things I love but have never gotten around to making:
Need to practice:
  • soy sauce chicken with garlic and ginger
  • kabocha (Japanese pumpkin) risotto
  • fried rice
  • stir-fried tomato and egg
Today's plan:
Fresh mozzarella salad
  • need tomatoes and fresh basil
Kabocha risotto
  • need kabocha, onion, throw in some other veggies?
soy sauce chicken
  • need everything (chicken, garlic, ginger, eggs)
Edit: 6pm
It'll take too much time to make the chicken so I'm going to look up more vegetable recipes.
