Cream of Asparagus Soup

I grew up loving asparagus -- from collecting it, cleaning it, to eating it. But we only ever ate it the one way (boiled, add salt and butter). So when I came across a recipe in 365 Favorite Brand Name Slow Cooker Recipes (and it's not a slow-cooker recipe, go figure) for an asparagus soup, I was leary. But it turned out so rich and delicious and easy that I had to keep it!
