Tonight's Dinner: March 6, 2012

Tonight I was inspired by a bunch of saffron that I found in the cabinet during my refinishing project.  I decided to make an Indian-style dinner.  I wanted to use up the second half of our asparagus bag from Costco as well as use what I had in the fridge and freezer.  To use some of the saffron, I made saffron rice.  I just combined two recipes I found on Allrecipes.com.  I think I'll try again with long grain rice before I make any comments on it.  I only had short grain in the house so it came out a little mushier than I would have liked.
