We’re calling Asparagus Soup experiment a success.
Very nice flavor and texture. My only substitutions were I used 2% milk, and I didn’t measure much. I know I significantly more vegetable broth!
I used my immersion blender and I’m not sure it’s still speaking to me. Asparagus is not meant to be immersion blended!
Last test will be freezer & thaw.Recipe Photos

I’m not trying to imply one is better than other, but…..
EDIT!!CuriousGeorgina did this with the Presidents speech and I noticed you could do it with anything with an RSS feed. So this is my blog in a cloud.
I find it very unnerving when I’m sitting at my desk working and I look up and see the very distinctive purple of my Xanga background on my co-workers laptop!
I’m glad I like my coworkers.
My husband is on call 24/7 and believe me people call. He is currently talking to a guy in Los Angeles. He talks to them frequently. An interesting phenomenon is occurring this time though. Apparently this particular call is annoying my dog. She keeps walking up to his chair, staring at him, and then occasionally whining with confusion. I think she doesn’t understand that he’s on a phone and she thinks he’s talking to himself. He’s talking to someone in a glass manufacturing plant so he’s talking very LOUDLY!
I have however learned that the FTA cannot be on that controller. And if they want to use OTG they must get a different one! We’re a very exciting family.
For some reason in last week or so, every time I do something there is very likely a person right there to tell me why I did it wrong and how I should .do it differently. This is starting to wear on my very last nerve, and I believe there will be repercussions soon.
Looking forward to fun evening on Thursday with my sister! Charity Event, and away time…BONUS!
That this would be hysterically fun. Someone should buy it for me! I would sing while working out, and record it.

It occurred to me today that I really enjoy making soup.
This weekends experiment comes from the current issue of Vegetarian Times (thanks erin!)
Roasted Red Pepper and Carrot Soup. I’m not a big fan of Carrot soup, but I love roasted red pepper so we’ll see. My only adjustment to the recipe was a trade out of Sweet Basil for Bay leaf. Luckily I didn’t have any bay leaf. I don’t really like Bay. I think sweet Basil will be okay as a sub.
That is all.
Good bye. 🙂
Because something is wrong with me. I am snappy. And not like oooh, what a snappy dresser she is! More like, I’m going to snap your head back with my punch. Don’t know why, but I do realize it so hopefully my coil will unwind soon.
