Yes, yes, I know it has been forever since I posted anything (actually over a year). I have been trying to follow the idea of less talking more doing. For the most part, this has been a very productive approach. Now I am kind of swinging the other direction. More talking, more relaxing...

So I Sautéed 10oz chopped spanish Chorizo until it was lightly golden, set aside. Sautéed 1lb. peeled shrimp about half way, set aside. Sautéed sliced shallot and crushed garlic with 2 cups Arborio rice in 2 tbsp e.v.o.o. about 2 minutes. Added a pinch of Saffron and 1 can chicken stock. Brought to a boil, reduced to a simmer and covered. simmered about 14 minutes. Added a can of fire roasted tomatoes including juice and more stock. Returned to simmer and when most of the liquid was absorbed added 6 clams (they were out of mussels) and the shrimp. The dish finished absorbing the liquid, cooking the shrimp and steaming the clams in the last say 5 minutes. Topped with chopped parsley and green onions I served it with lemon wedges, Rosemary olive oil bread, balsamic and e.v.o.o. for dipping the bread and a nice Pinot Noir.

I know, I know, the seedy baguette isn't right but it was what I could find. I made home-made Spicy Lime Mayo, Do Chua and Black Pepper Marinade Pork Loin. Incredibly delicious. In the future I am hoping I can get the "right" bread at the best asian market.

I have been looking for several years... Finally I found one. Knelt down to take a photo and saw three more. Like my brain finally clicked and made the connection. I spent 3 hours traipsing thru the woods on a wonderfull hike and on my way out these were all found within feet of the trail...
Seven black Morels and the solitary Yellow. Not a major score but enough for dinner.
