Grandma's Asparagus

My grandmother grew up on a farm, and in her day many vegetables were served in cream or milk. I have never seen asparagus served this way in any other home, but it is one of my favorites when fresh asparagus is in season. The amounts of ingredients are just a guess, and you can adjust them depending on how much asparagus you want to prepare.
