Instructions

  1. THIS IS AN ORIGINAL RECIPE BY Angelica Di Chiara @FinestItalian
  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs with a fork until they are well mixed and frothy. Set aside.
  3. In a large pot, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add salt when a bubbling boil has been reached. Pour in the rice and stir.
  4. When water is back to boiling, reduce the heat to medium and boil uncovered for 12-14 minutes, or until rice is just about tender. Drain.
  5. In a pan, melt the butter over medium heat until it becomes bubbly, add the hot drained rice and stir. Lower heat, add cheese and stir well. Then, add beaten eggs and mix well. Add lemon juice and lemon rind. Continue to stir gently for 2 or 3 minutes. Rice will be very creamy.
  6. Serve immediately. Top with extra parmesan if desired, sprinkle with pepper and enjoy.

Notes

This is an easy and nutritious recipe. Much easier and lighter then Risotto, but equally good. Enjoy!!

Family joke

Here is a cute joke, you probably heard it before, but so what, as long as it makes you smile… 😉

A child asked his father, “How were people born?” His father answered: “Adam and Eve made babies, then their babies became adults and made babies, and so on.” The child then went to his mother, asked her the same question and she told him, “We were monkeys then we evolved to become like we are now.” The child ran back to his father and said, “You lied to me!” His father replied, “No son, your mom was talking about her side of the family.”

HUMOR: marriage joke

I think we all need a laugh at least once a day, more if possible 🙂

In that vein let me pass on this marriage joke I found somewhere a long time ago. It is not meant to be demeaning to anyone, it just reflects people, cultures, beliefs,fears, life, love and everything in between. Smile!

A woman died and arrived at the Gates of Heaven.While she was waiting for Saint Peter to greet her, she peeked through the gates. She saw a beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents and all the other people she had loved and who had died before her.

They saw her and began calling greetings to her.
“Hello – How are you!
We’ve been waiting for you!
Good to see you.” When Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him, “This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?” “You have to spell a word,” Saint Peter told her.”Which word?” the woman asked.
“Love.”
The woman correctly spelled “Love” and Saint Peter welcomed her into Heaven.
About a year later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day.
While the woman was guarding the Gates of Heaven, her husband arrived. I’m surprised to see you,” the woman said. “How have you been?”

“Oh, I’ve been doing pretty well since you died,” her husband told her. ” I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you were ill.  And then I won the multi-state lottery.
I sold the little house you and I lived in and bought a huge mansion. 
And my wife and I traveled all around the world. We were on vacation in Cancun and I went water skiing today. I fell and hit my head, and here I am. What a bummer!  How do I get in?”

“You have to spell a word,” the woman told him.

“Which word?” her husband asked.

“Czechoslovakia.”

IF YOU BELIEVE…

FEEL FREE TO add your own ‘if you believe” verses TO THIS POEM IN A COMMENT.

If you believe that a smile is stronger than a weapon,
If you believe in the power of offering a hand,
If you believe that the things that unite men
have more power than the things that divide them,
If you believe that being different can be a treasure ,
If you know how to look at another with love,
If you prefer hope to suspicion,
If you consider taking the first step,
Rather than waiting for the other to make peace,
If the glance of a child still succeeds in disarming your heart,
If you delight at your neighbor’s joy
If you find injustices suffered by others just as revolting
as the injustices faced by you,
If for you a stranger is a potential brother or sister,
If you know how to give some of your time, free of charge, in the name of love,
If you recognize what others do as a service to you,
If you share your bread and knowledge
to join another to a piece of your heart,
If you believe that forgiveness goes farther than vengeance,
If you know how to sing to the happiness of others
And dance to the rhythm of their joy their enjoyment,
If you can listen to the unfortunate ones who waste your time
And give him or her your smile,
If you know how to accept criticism and take advantage of it,
if you know how to grow from an opinion radically different then yours,
If you don’t let anger be your weakness,
If you prefer to be hurt rather that harming someone,
If you refuse to go with the flow when you know the flow is only leading to destruction
and if you know how to swim against the currents if necessary, just like salmons do,
If you befriend the poor man and the oppressed
Without thinking of yourself as a hero,
If you believe that the LOVE is the only deterrent power,
If you believe that the Peace is a possibility and let others know about it,
Then you already know Peace and will get to share in it when it comes for all.
