Lazy Gourmet #1

My mom in law, Caroline Walker, had some terrific recipes she shared with me over the years and I've come to think of them as Lazy Gourmet recipes -- easy and quick to prepare, and incredibly delicious.

This holiday season I want to introduce you to a couple. This first one is an elegant soup, ideal for a holiday lunch or dinner where you don't have a lot of time for hors d'oevres, but want to serve something a teeny bit special.

Mushroom Asparagus Cream Soup

1 can mushroom soup

1 can asparagus soup

3/4 can evaporated milk

3/4 can water

Pour ingredients into food blender and puree. Pour into pan and heat. Serve with garlic croutons.* Yummy!

*Garlic croutons: old French bread cut in cubes, pour 1/4 cup olive oil in toaster oven pan, mince fresh garlic into the oil, heat, toast the cubes in the garlicky oil til crunchy, brown and toasty.

Thanks,Medor. Had some earlier this week -- I'd forgotten just how tasty it was -- and decided to put it up for everybody else!
