Turkey, Cabbage and Leek Risotto; a story — 6 Comments

  1. Great story, but there’s no way I could spend any time in an entire book written like that. I’m very glad that nothing untoward happened though. Very scary when a loved one goes missing!

    We’re trying to avoid the carbs here. As much as I like rice and as delicious as this looks, I’ll have to wait to make this. In the meantime, I have cabbage, cabbage and more cabbage. I’ve made it sauteed in bacon fat, returning the bacon and adding onions, which is SO yummy! Using it as a bed for sheet pan chicken thighs with onion and mushroom…Our favorite though is cabbage and noodles. Alas, those are also off the menu for now.

    • The book is a challenge…. Some parts go well, then I find myself skimming, looking for some action. Love noodles and cabbage, too. We just love cabbage!

  2. J’adore risotto!

    And. I LOVE runon sentences and even though I may have difficulty if there are no names for the characters, after carefully avoiding reading any more just in case there are big spoilers, I went to our online library to see if I could get the book and I’m now Hold No.741 on 75 copies – I’m steeling myself, getting ready to wonder when the text is dialogue and how to guess who is speaking or when it’s simply description – rats I can’t think of any similes to throw into this comment – it’s as if I don’t speak English – I’m as blank as a shiny new coilbound notebook with tear-out pages!

    (Ha! That was almost as fun as playing the alliteration game!)

    • There is no dialogue…. just running commentary. I am having a love / hate relationship with it and it’s taking me forever to read it. I am learning a lot about the time / place, tho.
      Glad to see you recaptured your native tongue 😉
      I think this is a book to be savored slowly – like wine. Also, with wine.
