    this weekend, we were lucky enough to see Polly and have her make this terrific risotto! as many family recipes are, this one was a work in progress, and jon’s uncle, dan, suggested she mix in a bit of nutmeg. he’s a chef, so she went for it.

    so, we all highly recommend adding a pinch or two of nutmeg to this recipe. yummers.

    just made it…it’s really good, and I taste the love. You’re right, some nutmeg wouldn’t hurt.
    Incidentally, here’s my pal Gwen’s tasty potato salad recipe:
    Quarter some baby potatoes, put them under cold water and turn heat on high. Once they start boiling, time 5 mins then check for fork tenderness.
    In the meantime, mix equal parts dijon mustard (Grey Poupon what?) apple cider vinegar, honey and olive oil (or…to taste anyway). You probably need about a 1/4 of each (more than you really think) for about 2 lbs? of potatoes. Strain the potatoes and let them cool slightly. Pour the dressing over the warm potatoes and mix er up. They’ll absorb quite a lot of dressing so if it looks a little dry, add some more! Add about about a half cup to a cup (to taste) of chopped sweet onion and celery. Mix ‘er up, chill, enjoy! (This is a good recipe for picnics and potlucks cuz you don’t have to worry about mayo spoiling everyone’s day. PS…if you wanted to go nuts, you’d add some shredded cabbage.
