What dish would you make with a pinch of saffron\?

So I harvested my saffron and the threads are now drying.
Looks like I will have a generous pinch of saffron to play with.

I dont use saffron all that often, and when I do, it's usually in some sort of ice dish. I have no problems using it in another rice dish, just curious what you all would do if you had a generous pinch of saffron to use.

All suggestions welcome. Dont worry about the vegetarian thing, Im looking more for ideas than specific recipes just so I can get pointed in a direction.

A cup of chicken soup, or a vegetable soup of carrots, peppers, onions, a touch of tomato, a little celery, mushrooms, garlic lightly, mushrooms/or mushroom powder, a tiny bit of lemon, the saffron, and salt if needed, pepper if needed.

Mexican yellow rice, which is not to be confused with Canadian yellow snow. You're not supposed to eat that.

However, Pure white, Canadian snow, made yellow by lemon, or Mellow Yellow soda is ok.

I´d use it to make a paella; shrikhand ( an Indian yoghurt sweet); byriani rice; Morrocan saffron chicken; Indian paneer tikka (grilled cheese);chundoo ( an Indian green mango chutney with cardamom seeds and golden raisins), or a sauce for salmon.

I'd think it would be great added to hollandaise sauce.

Most people think necessity is the mother of invention. I always knew it was Frank Zappa.
