Notes

When I think of comfort food, I think of cream asparagus, corn and crab soup that my mother used to make for me when I was young. Mom used to use fresh crab meat and it takes forever. I make this same soup for my family, but I use canned crab meat, it's much faster and they love it. Here is my version of the Asparagus, Corn and Crab Soup.
