Mushroom and Artichoke Risotto

It was the first time I made risotto. I’d been watching lots of shows that make it, and I’d say it was a good experience. My arm got really tired from all the stirring. Not to mention I had a baby in the baby carrier on my front during the whole thing, so I wouldn’t do that again. It was delicious. My one year old ate it and seconds.

Stir-Fry Teriyaki Vegetables with Noodles

I made the noodles and Vegetables separately so if my daughters decided they didn’t like the teriyaki sauce they could at least eat the noodles.

I cut up some broccoli and cauliflower. Started those on med-high heat with some canola oil with some salt. I tossed in the remainder of the cole slaw mix that I had for something else last week, and a bag of sugar snap peas which I got on manager’s special from Kroger. When the vegetables were done, I put in my teriyaki mixture.

These noodles have 42 grams of carbohydrates. Eat sparingly. 🙂 I usually cook buckwheat soba noodles, but I couldn’t find them at the store, so I bought these instead.

I’m trying to figure out how to put  all the pictures in one line, so I’ll figure it out somehow. Sorry this post looks stupid.
