Delightfully smooth, yet sound and simple to make soup with broiled garlic and asparagus.
Today we're transforming splendidly GREEN vegetables into supper, and the ideal portion of garlic to go with everything.
ometime a week ago my other half asked me the amount he would need to pay for me to make him our preferred Asparagus Soup. To which I answered, "Pay me in SJP shoes, hunny!". <<< all said in Nene's voice.
Clearly, and as per him, I hadn't made that soup for us in over a year, and he was miserable. In this way, so miserable. In this way, what's a wifey to do? The truth is out. I made the soup. … and afterward I requested another pair of shoes.
You all. The adoration I had for my past asparagus soup formula might be surpassed now by this Roasted Garlic and Asparagus Soup. Formula. I can't get enough.
