    That was the top of the pasta box.  Dried.
    Here is the bottom



    The risotto was easy.  The ingredients came in a jar.  Boil some water, add the ingredients, and lower heat.  From there it is on how you like it, how much butter or Parm (or whatever else) you add.
    Really good.
    Stuff was ordered from an online place - I was ordering some fish eggs and saw these.  Couldn't resist 





    Was the risotto this good :lol:

    I might put a bit more butter in, next time.

    Speaking of, can we talk Butter.
    Preferences?

    Looked on our fridge this AM.  
    We did order some extra in prep for Thanksgiving, since when ordering grocery delivery it is common for them to substitute or omit based on what is available at that time and we wanted to be covered.

    Always have some of this, which our hearts thank us for.


    Then we need and want the real deal for some things.

    One of these is miles above the others (one of the best I've ever found, in a grocery store) but they are all at least decent.



    The Plugra is fantastic.
    Slap your mother good.
    For sure an attempted recreation of a fatter, European, butter.  


    What are your favorite butter types?

    I've not made butter, although I grew up around farms where many did so I'm fortunate to know the glories of homemade butter.


    Also - I keep mine in the fridge

    Know some who keep in the cabinet.

    Thoughts?

    Have y'all tried Plugra?  Side by side with Kerrygold they taste very differently, to me.

    Been there twice.  Both times for the burger not the steak. Love the corn and spinach sides. Can't go wrong really.

    This is ordering raw uncooked meat though right?

    As for butter I like Kerry Gold, Land o Lakes and Earth Balance third which I mostly use now.

    And you peanut butter fans should try some organic PB.  It's a game changer.

    Yeah the burger is probably the most expensive in the city other than the kobe burger at the old homestead. This one is better! $100 for the prime rib is why I have not tried the prime rib LOL.

    That should be fun.
    Steak looks pretty damn good, but I bet the star will be the wine. If you're gonna eat a hundred dollar steak, wine needs to be, what? at least 300/bottle, no?

    Corporate meal?  In that case, crab legs, center cut prime rib, one of each side, and bring on the Burgundy or the Bordeaux!

    So yeah, and this is no ordinary affair.  Have the CEO of a company I work closely with, along with his exec team flying out from Austin and taking me out Friday.

    Hotel at The Beekman, with a reservation at the bar before dinner. Then this place, then who knows.

    But yeah, I would imagine the wine order is going to be pretty phenomenal.
