One very fine, but rare evening, Silver Bullet volunteered to whip up Risotto with Veal as our main course for dinner.
It was simple, it was yummy and for that evening, it felt like it was food for the soul.
The portion was generous and he made more than plenty to last us for a few days. We ended up having to freeze the leftover, thinking that we could keep the portions for later use.
Bad mistake. When we re-heated up the frozen meal in a microwave oven several weeks later, the risotto had transformed into a very, very soggy porridge. It still tasted good though, and texture-wise, perhaps it was more suitable for babies without teeth.
Never, ever freeze a freshly-made risotto, unless of course, you’d want to feed it to a baby.
