Everything will be all right in the end. So if it is not right, then it's not yet the end.

Congratulations, Marye! How does it feel? Are you still trying to "absorb" it all? Hope you get to do all the things that you didn't have time for when you were working! So, what is the tux for, a big celebration party?

Oops, almost forgot, dinner is turkey soup with homemade noodles

From Lydia Bastianich on the Today Show!

Barley risotto with butternut squash and cranberries
Lidia Bastianich
Ingredients
• 2 quarts water
• 1 cup diced (1/4-inch) trimmed carrots
• 1 cup diced (1/4-inch) onion
• 1 cup diced (1/4-inch) trimmed celery
• 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
• 2 bay leaves
• 1 1/2 cup pearl barley
• 2 cups butternut squash, cut in 1/2 inch cubes
• 1 cup dried cranberries
• 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup Grana Padano
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Preparation
Bring the water, celery, carrots, onion, bay leaves and olive oil to a boil. Stir in the barley and cook until tender but still firm, about 10 minutes. Add the squash and cranberries and stir well. Continue to cook for another 20 minutes. Drain any excess water from the barley and return to pan. Whip in the butter one tablespoon at a time to combine. Stir in cheese and season with salt and pepper.

Patty Melts! But I'm kinda confused about how to get the swiss cheese to melt. Do I keep the patties and onions warm while grilling the bread slices with the swiss on them and then assemble or should I assemble and grill one bread slide, then flip and grill the other? Also, if I want ketchup on my patty, I should do this before final assembly, right?

Barbara, the cheese will melt as you grill the sandwich - you put it all together, butter or oil the outsides of the bread and treat just like any grilled cheese sandwich. You can add you ketchup at any point - I'd smear it on the bread first as you are putting it together. (or on the burger pattie?) You keep the burger and onions warm just while you are doing each part of the sandwich so everything goes together kinda warm, but don't worry if they are not, just grill at a little lower temperature to give everything a chance to warm up.

Sharon - barley cakes would be delicious made from leftovers of that barley risotto (Lydia's)
