Recipe: Asparagus & Mushroom Risotto

What we had for today, again thanks to my husband for god knows how rajin he had been and will be! He made this yummy asparagus and mushroom risotto for our lunch today. It was really nice and creamy but just perfect enough to satisfy our appetites. :)

Since there have been a few people asking me about the recipe, thought I'm just gonna share it here.
