Scrounging around

Don't you just love making a recipe that uses all those odds and ends in your fridge? I did it tonight with Christmas food: I managed to use up the last of the Christmas ham, a bit of left over red wine, some shallots, 2 leeks and some cheese. I whipped all of this into a rather tasty (but purplish looking) risotto.
On another cooking related note, my mum gave me a mushroom bag for Christmas. It looks like it is made of calico with a black meshy lining. It is pretty cool, haven't tried it yet but fingers crossed that it keeps my mushrooms fresh as daisys.
