Nearly time for Halloween, and last nights dinner

We took the girls shopping for their Halloween costumes today,because they are getting excited about it being nearly Halloween-month. M chose to be a witch (again) and R wanted to be a unicorn - R hasn't taken her costume off since we got home. I hope it will last to Halloween! Aren't they both too cute for words!
For dinner last night I made a Pad Thai Risotto. That is I took the flavourings and ingredients from a pad thai and used them to make a risotto, so the dish title is pretty self explanatory. I didn't write the recipe down and while it was OK I don't think the concept as a whole was worth repeating too soon. A girls got to experiment though, right.

The risotto looks gorgeous and sounds yummy. Any chance of the recipe? I don't have a good pad thai recipe, but I love eating it when out.

Toni, I didn't really have a recipe, just sauteed some red onion, garlic, lemongrass, red pepper and ginger, added the rice, did the stock cook down thing, added a little lime juice and chili flakes to taste and garnished with toasted peanuts. I need to re start the habit of writing stuff down!
