It has been quiet here for the last few months. Time has been full of visitors, trips to San Francisco and it has gotten so hot in Austin that I can’t bare to go out until at least 8pm or later. But, then there are the mosquitoes to contend with. So….
In May we headed to Fredericksburg Herb Farm. Delicious!
More pictures from the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch.
Checked out the Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch this week while company was in town – you can drive through the grounds as many times as you want, feeding the animals.
Lesson learned – in Austin you are not able to buy alcohol before noon, and since I was there at 10:30 in an effort to beat the weekend crowd, I was unable to purchase the white wine the recipe calls for. But, we carried on.
Since not everyone in the house likes asparagus I added mushrooms as well. Also, texture is a big deal around here so I pan fried, in olive oil, the mushrooms so they too were al dente, like the risotto, and then did the same for the asparagus once the mushrooms were done.
I also doubled the recipe since there were two of us but we still had a little bit of leftovers, perfect for lunch the next day.
