More Adventures in Food - Home Cooking!

Ah cooking!  Something I absolutely LOVE to do.  These are the pics of my chicken tacos and rice that I made.  The awesome thing was I made my first tomatillo sauce.  The recipe I followed was actually for a green chili enchilada type thing but we did tacos instead.  The sauce turned out really good and I loved trying the tomatillos.  I've never cooked with them before so I was excited to try something new.
And then there was BBQ...  We made BBQ burgers, two types of chicken and the funky looking thing is a grillable cheese.  I love cheese so when I heard there was a type of cheese you could grill I was all over it.  This was actually the second type we've tried.  It's rather salty yet smooth cheesy goodness.  MMM!!!
On our BBQ day I also tried another first.  Mushroom Parmesan Risotto.  I'd heard risotto is hard and that it's easy to ruin so I was a little nervous but I love to try new things.  I followed the recipe and used some tips I got from watching an episode of Good Eats called Do The Rice Thing.  Ah at least my Food Network obsession is paying off. 
This is a closer view of the risotto.  Served with some freshly grated Parmesan cheese.  YUM!  Joe liked it and it was even good the next day.  AMAZING!
Once we put it all together we had the risotto, burgers, grilled cheese and grilled veggies.  Ah I love grilled veggies.  I love cooking with Joe.  We make such good food.  MMMM!!!
