Cream of Asparagus Soup

Dinner Tonight
Cream of Asparagus Soup
Since it's in Season and just about done why not.
So it rained at work today and home base so felt like comfort food.
I started a Pot Roast for tomorrow since it takes a while.
Made Taco Meat for the middle of the week.
I wanted soup and why not I made Cream of Asparagus Soup
voile' here it is Bon Appetit!!!

I grilled the Asparagus with Olive Oil and Seasoning until they are charred on each side.
In a pot 1 saute'd 1/2 sweet onion and garlic,
Added 3 cups Chicken  Stock
1 Squirt of Anchovy Paste
Salt, Pepper, White Pepper and Old Bay Seasoning to Taste, Healthy amount of Thyme
1 Tablespoon Butter
I chopped the Asparagus and then puree'd those guys
Add to stock
I add 1 heaping Tablespoon of Cream Cheese I thought I had Cream Fraiche but none.
Then I used an immersion blender
Simmer for 5 minutes
I added 1/2 cup of Heavy Cream
Let thicken and ready to serve
Yummy with Croutons, I baked those while the Soup was on.
