Dinner party redux

pans soaking in the sink

Sideboard with clean dishes stacked up - can't put them away right away!

So let's see - I think I liked the risotto the best. Here's the recipe I ended up with; not quite the full amount of butter Hopkinson recommended:
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1 large onion, diced pretty fine (about 1 1/2 cups)
  • 3 cups of Arborio rice (Hopkinson, and the Australian recipe with less butter, say to use Carnaroli, which evidently is super creamy, but I had Arborio, so I used that ...)
  • 10 2/3 cups chicken broth
  • 3 heaping cups sugar snap peas, juliened
  • 3 TBLS chopped fresh mint
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan, plus more to pass at the table
Oh, and of course the berry dessert I also liked best.
