Baby it’s cooold outside…so eat soup!
Just when we thought we were going to escape this year, Mother Nature decided to slam us here in New England with a healthy dose of the white stuff…not to mention that fun blizzard and then a flash freeze to dash any of our remaining delusions! Lucky for us, we have soup! I love making soup, and I make a lot of it the cooler months. This was true in California as well as here in Eastern MA, everyone likes a warm bowl of soup on a chilly day. The best thing about making soups, and stews as well, is you can truly make it up as you go along. This happens more often than not in my kitchen, and is exactly how I came up with this yummy Curried Sweet Potato Soup. I happened to have a lot of leftover roasted sweet potatoes in the fridge and started looking around for stuff to add to them! Soups are very forgiving, and much simpler to make than most people realize, and a really great way to brighten up a cold day. This one makes a great, quick dinner served with a green salad and a plate of cheese and olives w/ a nice crusty bread.
