Risotto with asparagus and ham – 8 April 2012

We finished our taxes today instead of paying attention to having an Easter feast. When we were walking back from the studio, where we went for a workout, D realized he should make something with ham in it (since we had some) and by the time we got home, he had decided on a risotto with asparagus and ham.

He cooked the arborio rice in the Costco boxed chicken stock – is it Kirkland now? – and added grated Grana Padano, and then asparagus about 2 minutes before the end of cooking.

The asparagus continued to cook, of course, and was perfectly done when we ate it. He also added 2 slices of Kentucky Legend Ham, cut into stamp-sized chunks, and a set of herbs from the garden: chervil, tarragon, and chives (and salt and pepper).

He chose a Grocery Outlet Bordeaux to go with this – one we had and liked and bought more of. A real deal at $5.
