Risotto with Ham and Brussels Sprouts; Musée D’Orsay — 6 Comments

  1. I need to get to France again and make some trips to the Museums of Paris (I’m hoping in two years I can make a trip to celebrate a landmark birthday). If my memory serves me correctly, they don’t allow photos in D’Orsay. Has that changed, or were you being a bit sneaky? Naughty girl! 🙂

    I have always had a certain fondness for green bean casserole. I decided to please the food snobs in my family (and that kind of includes me) I made it for Christmas one year with fresh green beans, homemade white sauce with fresh mushrooms, and homemade fried onions. I didn’t do that this year though and stuck to more pedestrian vegetable preparations. I never made risotto for Christmas and I don’t know why. Never too late to start planning for next year…

    • Rachel, none of the museums had ‘no camera’ signs any longer. I think with all the camera phones it would just be too hard to enforce. And I think the problem was the flash, which I don’t see being used on the camera phones. Anyway, I was obvious, there were guards, and no one said anything. I did check 😉
      I made the green bean casserole once for the family Christmas using fresh beans, herbs, etc. I was roundly chastised for messing with tradition lol
