Cold bad enough that I took yesterday off work and am taking today off too. I decided that in mailing in sick this morning it was time to tackle the various problems with work though and sent them a rather long and wibbly mail. Just had a reply from Caroline which does make me feel a little better but at least it's all out in the open again now rather than festering. I seem to have stopped coughing for the meantime though so I think I'm going to go back to bed for a bit.

Mmmm nice risotto

Used pudding rice as I figured any short grain rice out to do and I was right. A handful of new potatoes and 2 big carrots, cut into small chunks and pre-cooked a bit in the microwave to speed things up. Onion, pepper, mushrooms and baby corn. A single stock cube for extra flavour, plus thyme, rosemary, sage and parsley. And a bunch of cubes of cheese stirred in right at the end just before serving. Served 2 (would have done 3). Collapse ). Must write it up as a recipe for my slimming class.

Only thing wrong with it was I burnt my tongue!
