Happy weekend !

Sunshine came up to visit from San Diego this weekend: it was great to see her again and gab over the beautiful tragedy of the DeTambles and Julia Child’s magical kitchen.

To celebrate, the boyfriend decided go all out and make a most delicious Leek and Pea Risotto with Shrimp.

Using home-make chicken stock helps ! But…we didn’t have any, so (:

Prepare and thoroughly wash the leeks ! Saute them with asparagus, and thaw out the green beans.

Laugh a little while you’re rushing around the kitchen with your girlfriend getting in the way !
