wild mushroom risotto  
Made up a big pot of wild mushroom risotto last night. Nearly two hours of work! Five kinds of mushrooms! Cremini, porcini, oyster, button, and an unidentified one from the Asian market that tastes sort of like shitake but looks a little different. It's pretty darn yummy. Very... earthy. After dinner tonight, we'll probably freeze most of it.

We've been getting into sauteed greens lately too! So far just spinach, but it's super yummy with some fried tofu and udon noodles.
