Risotto alla Osso Buco

I’ve been in a lazy cooking mood lately…

I want quick, easy, warm and comforting.

In my kitchen that means risotto.

The recipe, Risotto alla Osso Buco, has been updated, nutrition information added, and re-posted here: Risotto alla Osso Buco.

We went to the movies last night…. Or, more properly, we went to the cinema to see a film.

There is an old theatre in a town about 35 minutes from us that shows movies in English on a regular basis.  It’s run by some local volunteers.  We’d heard about it but, of course, never took the time to check it out.

But how can one resist James Bond (Skyfall)?

And our neighbors invited us.

The theatre was packed with English-speakers.


Just before the movie started one of the locals came in and asked people to raise their hand if they had an empty seat next to them so they could fit more people in.  The rest were turned away.  They’ll be another showing on Sunday.

It was fun….

It would have been more fun with popcorn, though.

No concession stand.

An update on our, ahem, disgusting problem.

It appears to have been a one-time event.

I’ve checked carefully (no kidding!) and haven’t seen any more evidence of anything.

As to why we use poison…. Because the damage they cause can be extensive.

We use traps where we can, but, strangely, most of the mice are very small.  They’re not heavy enough to set off the traps.  We know that because we watched one come out from behind the wood stove and eat all the peanut butter off the trap without setting it off.

Our mice are not very afraid.

We found a trap that was suitable for small mice, but it was a very fancy, very expensive, very large trap…. Not the kind one can tuck into tight places, like our ceiling.

So, for the mice in the ceiling we use the poison. Most of the time the mice have taken the poison away to eat.

Most of the time….
