Hi! I am here to share with you this crock pot Asparagus Mushroom soup recipe. This is not my original recipe . I got it from the old cookbook from Elsa’s Landing Restaurant and I thought it is worth sharing because you can make it in traditional stove cooking as well as slow cooking using your crock pot, yet the yield is utterly delicious. I packed this Mushroom soup for lunch. I cooked it overnight from 10 PM to 6 AM and bring it to work. This way, I am able to save money . I also made it in traditional stove cooking as soon as I arrive from work and it is ready in 30 to 45 minutes.
Lately, I have been cooking my meals through crock pot since I have been so busy from work,raising teen agers and maintaining the house. I have become dependent with my beloved crock and I REALLY THINK THAT CROCK POT IS THE BUSY WOMAN’S SAVIOR. As busy as I am now, I am grateful for these blessings of new job, motherhood and as wife… Thank you, God. I apologize if my incoming recipes will be crock pot made. I just have become a CROCK POT MINION… Enjoy this soup,you guys and see you later fro more crock pot recipes!
