Sweet Potato and Apple Soup

November 12, 2011

A sweet and delectable soup to welcome the cool weather.  When I saw this recipe I could not believe I had not paired these beautiful fall flavors together before and it will make your home smell like Thanksgiving any day of the week.  Although it is a substantial enough soup for a meal I love to have it as a starter for a fancy dinner as well.

      Thank you for the compliment/maybe because I really love hot soups and have so few months to make them/I give them priorities in life.
