TEX MEX RISOTTO with bonus TEX MEX SPICE MIX

TEX MEX RISOTTO with bonus TEX MEX SPICE MIX

 Here’s a tasty one for you Galley Peeps.  It was inspired by one of our home delivery plant-based meals.  A simple risotto with a Tex Mex flair. You’ve probably noticed that I’m big on making my own spice mixes.  For one thing, in my tiny galley there’s precious little space for a gazillion spice containers.  And we do love our Mexican type foods so this Tex Mex combo has become a favourite.  We love a little heat too so I…

SAUSAGE and VEGGIE PASTA

SAUSAGE and VEGGIE PASTA
