Mish - I think you mean "Dirty Risotto" (rice), not "Dirty Polenta" (cornmeal)?

I went over to the Food Network website to look up the recipe, & only Giarda's "Dirty Risotto" came up (with sausage & shrooms) for the show yesterday; came up empty-handed for "Dirty Polenta" for any show.

Thanks for correcting me. That's the recipe. Looked very good.

P.S. Think you meant to say Giada - not Giarda.

Alix, wanted to mention, I thought of you when I looked at brownie ice cream sandwich recipies. Here's one you might like:

Cherry vanilla ice cream first came to mind, and hey, why not some hot fudge topping. There's always room for dessert.

Last night was good. Like I said I already had a beef heart thawed so I made a great heart stew with red wine and lots of thyme and veggies. I served it over noodles and Paul was very pleased.

Tonight... it'll be the roasted chicken and rosemary potatoes!

Giada it is, Mish. While I like a number of her recipes, am not a fan of her on TV, thus not really up the name - lol!!!

I guess you answered the door fully clothed. What happened to the dining out?

This topic has been a hoot to read!

I have a similar problem but yet different. Mrs. BD is anti spice/seasoning. She grew up in a bland family, and pretty much anything and everything that I have made that included any seasoning or spice was met with disapproval.

So, conversely to pdswife looking for recipes to kick things up, I'm open to any and all bland recipes to add to the repetoire. We have about a 2 week rotation . . . . .*YAWN* . . . . . . .
