I know its a ways off, but since Ive only been cooking for a couple of years I want to try to make this meal at least twice before I serve it to my Mom. For some background, I recently had this holiday 'assigned' to me, by my sister in law, after last years (my first) Mothers Day meal. Last year I made lamb chops with balsamic vinegar, rice cooked with onions and garlic-with vegetable stock as the base, roasted aspargus and a parfait with strawberries and a marscopone chese. This year I plan on doing Osso Bucco, rissotto with mushrooms, and...? This is where I need some help. Any suggestions would be appreciated. The only thing is that the rissotto is non negotiable. Its one of my Mom's favorites and I learned how to prepare it for her. Thanks for your time.
