Sometimes I feel like I deserve a Super Mom Trophy. I’ll even settle for a round of applause. Sure, all Moms feel that way, but this is about me.
Being a parent, or better yet a MOM, is super hard. These kids of mine are awesome, but dude, gimme a break! I feel like these two little girls have a little plan called, “Let’s be sick all winter and see what happens”. As soon as one gets better, the other one starts to cough, sneeze…
I called the doc and guess what they told me!? ‘”Tis the season, hon!” Really? That’s all you got!?! Isn’t there some super drug out there!?
I’m about to turn to home remedies. My parents do this garlic and walnut thing – seems to work for them. I can’t give garlic to the baby, but I’m about ready to stuff it in Ana’s mouth and see what happens.
You know what else I’ll take a trophy for? For this insanely delicious Sweet Pea and Crispy Bacon Risotto. Not because it’s SO damn good. Because it is. But, I’ll take the trophy because I managed to put together a risotto dish while one child was pulling on my leg and the other was sitting on my hip, all while I was stirring the rice. You can’t see me, but I’m applauding.
I totally stole this recipe from my mom and I totally changed it. She is all about straight up plain risotto and I am so not. I love bacon and feel that it should be in every dish. I also like to throw something green in there for color, and some texture. Once all that is done, I feel that the tastiest risotto dish ever just made it to the table. Hope you like it as much as we do!
