      This was terrific. I lightened it a touch using skim milk mixed with low fat cream cheese to get the thickness of half and half, made it the night before and popped it in for brekkie this morning. bc i have found a brand of frozen asparagus is far superior to the fresh at this time of year i used those.great thing is they are so young and tender you just need to run under hot water for a minute to get "cooked" to tender. Sorry no pic, I was still sleepwalking when i ate it :)
