Brandied Shrimp with Risotto + Swiss Chard
Thanks goes out to the husband for pulling this together while I yelled at my stats homework!! Ugh. It’s getting hard again.
I found this recipe in Fitness Magazine. It’s Ingrid Hoffman’s – see it here. We didn’t use the exact proportions (basically cut back on butter/oil a lot and halved the recipe), but it was the inspiration. The flavor was great! But I wish the sauce had been a little runnier to blend into the rice.
Normally I like to have a whole grain rice as a side dish but we have TONS of arborio rice to use up, so white rice it was. It was quite delicious! Plus, I’m less concerned with whole grains and their fiber filling me up in the evenings when I’m headed to bed soon. Whole grains are most important to me in the mornings!
Lastly, we sauteed a head of swiss chard. Uh, we needed about 5 more of these! This portion was entirely too small!

I spent the afternoon studying and had 2 mini muffins, some Kashi Heart to Heart and hot tea around 4:00. My soup held me over well! Snack kcal ~ 160
