Thanks for visiting my blog. Yours looks great.

Your menu looks so good. I was going to say how could you manage to do all that cooking AND take pictures and then I saw that the Mrs. was involved. Good job.

How about posting the recipe for the butternut risotto cakes? The grilled carrots looked gorgeous too.
