I'm quite in awe of all the people in blogland making in the run up to Christmas. I am all made out. I came home from work and vegged. I hope I don't have another lurgy. I think it's more the lack of proper sleep I've been getting these last few days. I hope I'm fully recovered for going out tomorrow night!
I also think blogging every day might be what's jinxed me as it seems just when I decide to blog every day I have nothing much to share. So today I'll keep it short and leave you with a picture of the present I received today from an Italian family friend. Mum didn't realise the Risotto I make has its roots in Italian cuisine until relatively recently. (Mum is not a foodie.) Anyway, I told her Risotto comes from the part of Italy her friends husband is from. A chance conversation with said friend about my cooking Risotto and here I have a little sac of genuine Italian rice perfect for Risottos.
