Risotto ;-)


I made a roasted butternut squash risotto today, a bit of something to do mixed with using up what I had in the cupboard.  While stirring the rice I got sort of transfixed watching it move around the pan.  It got me thinking, what if a big spoon came down to earth and gave us all a big stir.  Can you imagine where you might end up, a beach, on top of a mountain or in the middle of the sea.  Nothing you take for granted this minute would be there, no friends, family, possessions, it would be just you in what your wearing.  I imagined myself ending up in a coffee shop, I found myself sitting next to a writer of all people!

Thinking about this I wondered if this would be good for the human race, stir us all up and send us out into the world to start again.  Think of it, no religion or at least followers or congregations left, no political parties to follow as they would have been separated like my rice and no wars as the enemy would have broken up and soldiers dispersed.

I sort of think it might be a good idea, I think we would have to make the best of what we had left, make new friends, think for ourselves as society would no longer make the rules.  I would imagine society would come about at some point but for the time in-between we would have to fend for and think for ourselves, we would be our own masters.  I think love and kindness would be much more prevalent as we would all be on our own, we would have nothing to loose and everything to gain.

Anyway my risotto was smashing, I wonder what I should have for desert  😉

  1. Quite a recipe for a fantastic life. Although ahead of its time and I guess people will have to develop a taste for this unique recipe of life suggested by you, in small portions; each morsel carefully tasted and then allowing the senses to identify if more condiments are required to balance the unique lifestyle and philosophy you described. Got me thinking for sure. 🙂

    1. But where is the fun in that, if we did it gradually we would be stuffing our pockets and walking around clinging onto our possessions. I think a big stir would be much more fun 😉 I do have a vivid imagination but it might sort the world out a bit. My only request would to be somewhere warm with interesting people 😉

      1. Hmmm… point taken. A big stir with and churning to create a rapid shift. We definitely need to sort out, but we lack the initiative, so as you suggest it is up to the daring consciousness to bring in a magical transformation. Well, good idea, then you can enjoy a warm meal with interesting people, discussing the new experience. 🙂

  2. Super how looking at a cooking concoction can make you think up something like this. Creative and imaginative and playful you are! Wonderful idea Liza, and glad it turned out.:) I think your big life stir would too.


    1. Thank you, yes strange what comes up at times. I think when we are focused on something else it’s a great time for our minds to wonder. I’m making some changes to my life at the moment so maybe that was at the back of my mind ; )
