      Ok, this was surprisingly yummy! But the recipe doesn't actually say what to do with the asparagus. I think there's a step missing. I diced it up in 1 inch pieces and mixed it in with the cream cheese mixture. Even my little girl liked it!

      I really wanted to like this, and I had thought it would be something the whole family would enjoy..but we just didn't. I think maybe if there was less cream cheese mixture it could be better. I think it has potential, but we won't be trying it again. Sorry Lainey.
      **Just wanted to add, I just came home from work and decided to try a piece of one of the leftovers, cold. It was much better cold, so maybe it would be nice made into little tartlets for a picnic or something.
