I love asparagus. I mainly like to prepare it along side a fish dish with rice until I found Mimi Thorisson's recipe on her blog Manger. I adore her blog with it's stories and pictures and fabulous food and recipes. She also has a new cookbook out that I am currently waiting for at the library. The first time I made this soup... number one I made a mess trying to use my old blender and number two I also made big fat parmesan croutons to go with the soup and had some scrumptious venison summer sausage slices too. With our outdoor temperatures dropping significantly this week this soup will be perfect to warm us up inside.

I will tell you this... it just took me forever to find the smoothie recipe floating back through my pc history for the last two days. I knew I should have bookmarked it! I knew it was before I went to the grocery store Saturday morning because I made a mental scan through the ingredients I had on hand and the ones I needed to pick up. I love smoothies... especially green ones. Remember my very own favorite green smoothie? I don't make it as often as I'd like to mainly because the price of avocados goes out the roof when they aren't in season. Right now they are about a dollar twenty five a piece. But you can always get kale and frozen peaches. The hemp I didn't have but a quick trot in the health food store helped me out. I didn't get the powder... just the seeds. I like to use them in my granola bars and on my breakfast toast and figured the blender would chop them up anyway.
It's going to be a good week in the kitchen here!
