6 Day Menu Plan: Week 3  Fall II

This week on the Menu we have:

saltimbocco Veal Saltimbocca all Romana with Gnocchi

risottoButternut Squash Risotto

mustard chicken  Baked Chicken Breasts with Mustard Crust

Weekly Shopping List 

        Risotto season is back!  I love it in all versions - and it's a great way to use up leftovers. 
The disclaimers: it's NOT difficult to make; it does NOT need to be stirred constantly; it should NOT be loaded with extra butter and fat; and it should NOT be stiff. 
It should be almost soup-like when you take it off heat and pour it into the serving platter.  It will continue to thicken and just, barely, hold it's shape on a plate.  That's what makes it creamy and luscious!  The risottos I've eaten in Italy have all been served in flat soup bowls and eaten with a spoon.
   Bon Appétit!
