Trying to find a mythical 5th internet port in our house because he swears we have 5 even though he only knows the location of 4.

He's currently looking behind towels in the linen cupboard so he's getting desperate.

Making 24 egg free mini muffins for kids birthday party at kinder tomorrow plus 12 regular ones for sport after school plus a big one for us to cut after dinner tomorrow night. He's finishing the decorating now. Just told him he better wash up the lunchboxes before he goes to bed. I'm very helpful like that.

We have one in the ceiling cavity for central WiFi. Maybe try in the manhole?

Deep cleaned our oven

Mopped the floors

Did the dreaded recycling-plastic-bottles run.

To be fair, I vacuumed and did some... um... important sitting around reading a book.

I'm after a good risotto oven recipe... care to share?

Sitting next to me in bed, dog fast asleep at our feet reading a book.

PS get a pyrolytic oven - deep cleans itself ;)

I did a really simple mushroom one.
Soak dried mushrooms in hot stock, set aside. Then saute onion and fresh mushies in butter til soft in a crockpot, add garlic and rice,  saute a min or so, then add in herbs and the stock mushies.
Bake covered in a hot oven until rice is cooked. Stir through parmesan and small bit of butter.
You can tweak it to add in other veg or add in saffron to the stock, or add a little wine in when you add the rice to crock pot.

If you want an even easier recipe,  do the Nagi baked mushroom rice.
So yum!

Thanks, sounds like the one I do on the stove top (I have to add chicken as DH likes meat with his meals :huh: ). I've never tried it in the oven, I'll have to give it a go :) thanks

I always do risotto in my rice cooker but next time I will try the oven.

After hours DH would be usually reading guitar forums. Right now he is out in his work shop in the process of building a guitar, a Gibson explorer for those guitar nerds out there.

Love risotto in the oven! It does take about twice as long to cook though.
