Spicy Cream of Asparagus Soup

Things are starting to warm up in the garden and I see the neighboring farm spreading straw to protect those strawberries in the fields which means SPRING is right around the corner.  With the sights and sounds of the outside growing season upon us one of the first fresh harvests will be asparagus.  We usually have so much asparagus from local growers and our own garden that it’s hard to keep up with creative recipes.   In today’s share I’ve got an amazing soup that I know my family will love with the spicy cram addition.  I hope you will print up this recipe or bookmark my site on your mobile and give this a try.
