Yesterday was a sad day... I had to drive Holli back to the airport. It was hard to believe she had been here ten days. Time just flew by too fast. The last few days had been so hot and humid here that we didn't get to go digging around in the sheds too much but she did help me come up with some good ideas for a few things. Now I just have to do them.
Last week I had told you about our visit to our friend Diana's house and how she prepared a wonderful lunch for us. I had never had Cream of Asparagus soup before and fell in love with it when she served it. The recipe was pretty easy and a great way for me to use up some of our surplus asparagus. (Yes, I am still picking it out of the garden!)
1 large 'family-size' can - Mushroom Soup
Combine the mushroom soup and chicken broth together in a small stockpot.
Next add the mushrooms, garlic, asparagus and green onions.
Cook on medium heat, slowly adding the heavy cream until you get the consistancy you want. Let it cook on low for about 20 minutes, being careful not to let it scorch.
We really enjoyed this soup. I think next time I make it, I will try using fresh mushrooms. It was wonderful and definately a keeper to my recipe box. Thank you Diana!
Now that school is out, I am hoping that I can devote a little more time to posting and creating here. I have so many ideas of things to do, I just have to get up and do them. I hope you all have a great Tuesday!
