the soup i dreamed up...

I don't know about you, but I
LOVE
LOVE
LOVE
sweet potatoes and yams.
They are on my menu all through the year -
baked,
roasted,
I make them into fries
and now...
soup.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
First  - Bake 2 sweet potatoes and 2 yams at 350 for about an hour or until they are nice and soft.
Remove skin.
Next, slice them and set aside.

Dice 1 onion and soften in 1T of olive oil and 1T of butter - mince 3 heads of garlic and put in with the onion.
to your softened garlic and onion add 2t of cinnamon and 1t chili powder,
to that dump in your sliced (already baked) sweet potatoes and yams and smash it up,
then add in 4 cups of chicken stock and simmer until it all becomes melded beautifully together
(approx. 10-15 min.) -
Next take your delicious sweet potato concoction and put it through the blender... in batches if necessary.
Put soup back into your stock pot.
(Honestly, it works to just blend like 2/3 of it and then you can have it a little chunky but I blended all of it
as I love it smooooove)

It's important that you 1/2 c heavy cream. Very important. :)
Then you sneak quite a few bites just because it taste like dessert rather than dinner.
and then you call the family to bowl up...
and hoping you don't already have a belly-ache
 and enjoy!

Speaking of enjoy!!

We have been thoroughly enjoying our chickens and they just started to lay!!!

Find joy in each day,
praise His name,
and speak to others about His love and grace,
for “the joy of the Lord is MY strength”
Nehemiah 8:10
