It seemed like a fine idea at the time. I was in a risotto mood; didn't have any white wine but had some red. Giada said it would be okay.
Actually it tastes fine. Great, in fact. But that color is awfully hard to ignore. It's somewhere between grey, brown, and pink. Sounds great for a bathroom wall perhaps. But not so much for dinner.
That's okay. It gave my children something new to sneer at. And the hubby commented "what's up with that rice". Beats the heck out of me!
