Two Potato Chowder

My step mom made this soup for us last year when we were visiting. It’s very tasty and filling. And, it’s easy to whip up! Don’t forget the shredded cheese and bacon to sprinkle on top of the soup when you serve it. This will warm you up to the core on these cold and nasty days we’ve been having!

    This is the only way we eat our asparagus as well. Do people still boil asparagus? Seriously, it’s kind of a waste that way…
    Sometimes the simplest recipes are the best to share. ๐Ÿ™‚

    One of my all time faves. Roasted anything, actually, but asparagus gets so crispy and flavorful!

    We love to grill asparagus that has been rubbed with olive oil and sea salt–so good! ๐Ÿ™‚

    p.s asparagus season is one of the highlights of our year to hehe. So many fantastic things you can do with it! Have you tried roasting it in orange juice and silvered almonds? Devine.

    I can’t remember if I’ve ever had roasted asparagus – roasted broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts definitely but roasted asparagus could be a new one. Sounds awesome! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We made this last night with grilled pork chops and homemade mac and cheese. I tossed in the olive oil, garlic salt, and pepper and then probably ate 1/4 of them cold while I was waiting for the oven to heat up. Hubby and I each took a serving for our plates after they cooked and then stood in the kitchen eating the rest off the baking sheet before we had dinner! So good and so easy for our favorite veggie!
