Crunchy risotto and wine

I have to take these steroids with food. Tonight i decided to make up a box of mushroom risotto and have some wine. I got a little distracted and the rice burned a bit when I was sauteeing it. I decided to go ahead and finish the dish, burned or not. And yeah, it tasted good! The burned parts made it crunchy and added that bit of carbon you don't always get with risotto.

I can't quite describe what a pleasure it has been to eat this crunchy risotto with a glass or two of red wine. Somehow it relaxed me and made me happy.

I was tense yesterday. I still had a bit of a headache, and I wasn't fully prepared for last night's rehearsal and I just wanted the day to be over. Today it was over. I had the freedom to let my hair down. Turned out a person - me - who goes to bed at midnight and wakes at five - might not be all that awake when that person comes home in the afternoon. I lay down to nap, ignored what I intended to do, felt slightly headachey still. Then I got up and had the crunchy risotto and wine and all is well. Funny how that can be.
