That's sounds like a great idea - haven't done a risotto in years. A question though: I never know when is that magical moment to take the heat off, and get it to taste like you're in Italy. Often too crunchy or too sticky. Anyone with a hint on how to know when a risotto is "just right"?

Thanks for the heads up, Andy. Sorry you had to go to all that work. I expect more from Bayless.

Dad is still feeling under the weather but doesn't want Chicken Soup. So I am making him some of his favourite comfort food - salisbury steak with onion gravy. I usually do mashed potatoes but I have some leftover mashed from the other night and plan to fry them. Not sure of a veggie.

Dessert tonight is chocolate pudding cake served warm with home made vanilla ice cream

Well, I had a bowl for dinner with minced onion and shredded cheddar. With the addition of some Bite Me hot sauce, it was good. I wouldn't make it again.

I made Mark a spinach/lettuce salad with vegies, cheddar cheese and sliced chicken breast on top.

This was my dinner.... a doctor'd up frozen cheese pizza with spinach, tomato, onion, fresh basil, cheddar and a bit of Asiago cheese... strange mixture, but it was very tasty!
