Triple tested for quality!

Some time ago I posted about how I was actually starting to cook again. Well, it's been three months since then, and I still haven't done any other dishes other that that one, but I have done it twice more since then, the last time was last night.

Last night was theoretically Travis' last time at the Friday night games, and it was held at out place. I ended up cooking dinner for myself, Travis, and Ally, and koulaklementou had some as well (since she brought her own dinner, but wanted to try it). Everyone seemed to agree it was great, so I think I know how to cook this dish now.

So, I present to you Mushroom, Spinach and Lemon Risotto:
Serves 4

1.5 litres (6 cups) vegetable stock
1 cup (250ml) dry white wine
300g baby spinach leaves
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh lemon thyme

Method
1) Heat oil in a large saucepan; cook onion, garlic, rind and mushrooms, stirring until mushrooms are browned lightly.
2) Add rice, stock and wine; bring to the boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 15 minutes, stirring halfway during cooking.
3) Remove from heat. Cover, stand 10 minutes. Gently stir in spinach and lemon thyme. Serve with shaved parmesan, if desired.

Tasty!

Desert Rose

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of fire
Those dreams are tied to a horse that will never tire
And in the flames
Her shadows play in the shape of a man's desire

This desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

And as she turns
This way she moves in the logic of all my dreams
This fire burns
I realize that nothing's as it seems

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

I dream of rain
I lift my gaze to empty skies above
I close my eyes
This rare perfume is the sweet intoxication of her love

I dream of rain
I dream of gardens in the desert sand
I wake in vain
I dream of love as time runs through my hand

Sweet desert rose
Each of her veils, a secret promise
This desert flower
No sweet perfume ever tortured me more than this

Sweet desert rose
This memory of Eden haunts us all
This desert flower
This rare perfume, is the sweet intoxication of the fall
