Waited for a food parcel from my wife, but due to a massive amount of delivery, mine was postponed until tomorrow. No food to have, I made risotto myself. I used barley instead of rice. Even though the grain takes typically a long time to cook, I chose it so as not to take the […]
My son asked for the pasta to his mother. Then she made it for him. “Mother, it is delicious since I could well get the smell of the mother’s cook”. It must be the cream sauce with a bunch of flavorous seafood. It was the very late night.
