Easy Asparagus Cream Soup: A Perfect Dinner for Chilly Autumn Nights


The holidays become such a bustle, don’t they?  It seems like we’re already running rampant around a crazed schedule and Thanksgiving is still more than a week away.  Rather than get my panties in a bundle over all of the holiday preparations that I haven’t yet completed, I’m trying to focus more this year on taking & enjoying each day as it comes.  That means, taking the time to make healthy, delicious meals for myself and my family, even if they are quick and simple.  We served up this soup last night and the kids and I were delightfully pleased with it.  Thick and hearty enough to call it a meal, easy enough to make in minutes, this creamy, delicious soup is the perfect way to slow down your schedule, breath, relax, and enjoy the blessings of today.  Of course, it’s also a perfect Thanksgiving side dish.  So, if you’re frantically trying to prepare for the holidays, you’re covered there, too!
