So, I get home... it's winter and wet and cold. Mr Goddess is grumpy, the dogs are smelly and 3 out of 5 kids are "starving"..
And guess who forgot to go to the shops on the way home??
So what does a good Hound do??
Some aborio rice, a dodgy packet of pre-fab chicken stock (and you don't know how much that pains me to admit that I actually had that in my cupboard), mix up a quick basic risotto, but what to add????
There's some Indian take away left over from last night... So in goes and unidentified amount of palak paneer, maybe 2 tablespoons of Aloo Ghobi, something that may or may not be left over chicken Makhani, and a left over container of some unidentified pickle.
Stir.. Heat... Serve with left over cold raita and call it "fusion food"
Man.. it was SPECTACULAR!!!.. I mean really REALLY good.. like picky Master 11 got all "Oliver" on my a$$ and asked for "More"..
The pain.. the shame.. of knowing I will never be able to recreated this dish ever, ever again...
I am shattered.
Anyone else got a spectacular "will never be able to be repeated" recipe that you can mourn here??
