Chicken, Leek and Spinach Risotto; breakfast — 5 Comments

  1. Ewww about the pigeon! But if you’re ever forced to take care of one again, take the garbage bag, turn it inside out and grab the end. Drop the open end over the…dead thing, then you can grab said dead thing through the bag, fold the bag over it and tie the bag shut. That way, you don’t have to touch said dead thing…

    And this risotto looks amazing! Which is something I thought I would never post next to a paragraph about dead things…


  2. Yay for large bird caretakers!

    I love the sound of this risotto. I will have to remember to get leeks! (What do you do to clean the sand out of leeks? Do you soak them in water before or after cutting them?)

    • Back in the US, when my leeks were sandy, I rinsed them after cutting them in half, lengthwise, but before slicing. Now I don’t need to.

  3. nightsmusic, but I still would have to touch said dead thing through the bag….. I’ll hope for a resurgence in raptors to deal with them all,

    Zoomie, my thoughts exactly.

    Elizabeth, my leeks are always clean…. the French, you know. lol
