Cream of Asparagus Soup

Cream of Asparagus Soup

One of my all time favourite soups is Asparagus. It transports me to my moms kitchen and I’m sitting at the table slurping it off a spoon most likely with it dripping off my chin.
I have so many happy childhood memories, lots of them to do with food. I want to build a treasure trove of memories for my children with things we do, places we go and the food we eat.
I will not always be with them but I hope that at some stage in their lives they will remember a moment in time, a smile, a laugh, a happy family dinner or maybe just always have a bit of me by their side with their food memories.
Yesterday I made Asparagus soup for the twins and they loved it and lapped it up….today they put the heart across me by getting Conor stuck high up in a tree! Never a dull moment with these guys.
