We were at my daughter-in-law's a few months ago and she had made asparagus soup. There are two foods, I have not been able to get my husband to taste, since we were first married and they are tuna fish and asparagus.
My daughter-in-law, who is more like a daughter, offered another choice for hubby. I decided to be deceitful, something I am not at all good at, and told her just not to tell him what kind of soup it was.
Of course, through the soup course, I kept looking at my husband with a grin on my face, watching him eat the soup. I must have asked him a half a dozen times, if he liked the soup. I told you, I was not good at being deceitful.
Finally, I could not keep it in and after he responded he liked it and went and got himself seconds, I told him the truth. He is a good sport and he finished his second bowl, as we all watched, in awe.
When, I saw this recipe, I almost passed it by. My mind sees asparagus and keeps going. Still, I do have the memory of the last asparagus soup and what a success it was, so I decided to play the game again. He repeated his happiness in eating it and once again asparagus was just right.
I am not saying that asparagus on a plate would work as a dining choice but this soup stays on the menu and no one is going to complain.
Just a note - I am not a great fan of celery and I loved this also.
This week, I am cooking a number of recipes from Cooking Inspired, a book, I truly love to read and to cook from. It is the kind of book, I don't put stickies in because most pages would have one. I could open the book and most likely be happy with any recipe.
This is the second soup, I have made from the book, this week and both were delicious.
