I just love risotto and I want to thank food blogging for motivating me to make it, thats the wonderful thing about blogging. In fact Terra from Cafe Terra was talking about how easy pumpkin is to make on twitter the other day. So while taking cute snaps of Jasmine and her little buddy at the pumpkin stand I got one to eat not just for the front steps! I got a New Zealand winter squash, its a little cute purple/blue one. I made cous cous and added it and a pumpkin soup today, recipes to follow.......
So onto a simple and tasty risotto, oh I bet pumpkin would be great, maybe that will be my next pumpkin recipe!...

This funny picture is my feet in the leaves, we were walking the other day and had so much fun jumping in them and kicking them I thought we all needed a reminder :-)
So if you haven't jumped in leaves for a while find a tree lined area and have fun!
