Thanks for all the lovely feedback on the blog changes. I did make the link colour slightly darker as some people were finding it a little hard to read. I'm still a bit surprised when I arrive at the blog and I find I keep walking past the computer to admire the prettiness.

1 tblspn olive oil
1 clove garlic
1 small onion
1 stick of celery
1 large tomato
1 tblspn chopped mint
1 tblspn parsley
1 cup of Arborio rice
3 cups of stock
EXTRA VEGIES TO ADD: carrot, pumpkin, zucchini, squash,corn, peas
GRATE/FINELY DICE vegetables and any extra vegetables you want to add
HEAT pan and oil
COOK diced onion and garlic
ADD vegetables and COOK for 1 minute
ADD rice and STIR to coat with pan juices
Bring to BOIL and SIMMER for 30 minutes
ADD more stock if risotto is too dry or rice needs to cook for longer
I like to add extra vegies and make a double serve. It is great as a side dish/warm salad but we usually sprinkle some diced chicken on top and all members of the Button family devour it with glee.

Let me start by showing you a photo of Cooper. Cooper came to visit us at the markets on Sunday with Liesa and as I mentioned yesterday, was doing a grand job of modelling one of our new designs.

The House of Button is a hive of industry today. There are cars to be raced, herbs to be tended, chickens to be chased and sewing to be done before tomorrow's Boutique Markets. I'm on my designated sweatshop tea break so thought I'd share this quick and easy muffin recipe with you. We made them for breakfast this morning and there are only 2 lonely muffins left from the batch...we're declaring them winners!
