And, tonight was an example of a new recipe not quite "working". I made Porcini Mushroom Risotto that I found on the Epicurious website. The reviews were positive at Epicurious, so I thought I'd go for it. This was another Pressure Cooker recipe, and I was anxious to give it a try since at least 3 out of 4 of us like mushrooms (we are still working on the youngest member of the family).
Well, it took longer to cook than the recipe called for, which is never a good thing when you are using the Pressure Cooker to make dinner hit the table faster. My Husband said that it needed "something" or was probably just a bit "off" in flavor. While we both enjoy mushrooms, perhaps Porcini mushrooms are not something we care for... they are a bit "earthier" than the meaty Portobello mushrooms that I adore. Maybe a different mushroom risotto recipe will appear using a different type of mushroom and we'll give it another go, but for now I think we'll skip it. Oh well, chalk this up to one that just didn't hit the mark. No big deal, we'll try something different tomorrow!
Now, I am off to make a good old egg salad for my oldest to take in his lunch tomorrow. Nothing special to it, but it is one of his favorites. One thing I do think makes it a bit tastier is adding some sprinkles of dried dill to it, which seems to perk up the flavor a bit.
