aella is a rustic Spanish dish but one that can also be found on the finest tables around the Mediterranean. Classic Paella is made with Saffron, infusing rice with the flavor and color that only comes from that delicate pistole of the Saffron Crocus. Saffron has always been one of the most expensive spices in all the world, but luckily you can find it in very small quantities at specialty stores. It is not something you will use as an everyday spice, but its definitely worth the expense for special occasions and a few special dishes! Now I can't claim it was a special occasion, just a chance to celebrate life, and to remember how lucky we are to be able to enjoy a dish like this for no reason at all. My wife has come to expect a variety of foods since I have been blogging, most much simpler, but I try to have one very special meal at least once a week. Since we don't eat out very often, the expense doesn't seem quite so much, I always try to think of how much dinner would have been if we had eaten the same meal in that respect I am saving us money!
