Christmas Eve Asparagus Soup

In the Correa family every Christmas Eve my mother inlaw makes asparagus soup! It is amazing!! It's a tradition from her family. This year we didn't have it on Christmas Eve. So I made it on New Year's Day for a family dinner with the Arhets family and Correas! It was my first time making it. I was so nervous. But it was amazing!!! Even my mother in law approved. It was a great night with amazing food and fun!! I will continue to make this every year and pass this tradition on to my children !! Xoxo
