Meal #52: Dinner

Since we spent the whole day inside (rain and fear of driving down a mountain in it), I had plenty of time to roast a whole chicken and make a lovely wild mushroom risotto with sautéed radish greens and chicken-mushroom gravy.

There’s a serious damp chill in the air, so roasting meats in a hot oven was a must! Everything was very tasty although the plating fell short- sorry Adam. He says that although home is not a restaurant, I should be plating dinner like it is. He suggested molds, rings, forms, and towers of stacked fare with micro-green garnishes. We will see about that. Don’t get me wrong, I believe you eat with your eyes first, but I think a bigger part of me loves a rustic home-cooked look. It seems more comforting and true somehow. Also, I don’t even have a microplane here, let alone a ring mold. Hmmm…
