What is November known for?  Well we all know it is Thanksgiving and the turkey.

It is known for National Author’s Day on November 1st.  Also  National Novel Writing Month and National Peanut Butter Lovers Month.  Gluten Free Diet Awareness Month and National Georgia Pecan Month.  The one I really like is Sweet Potato Awareness Month.  Using sweet potatoes is a lot of fun.  When the weather in Florida starts to get a little cooler. I really like to make soups.  I am using the Sweet Potato Soup recipe and passing it on for you to try.  Hope you enjoy.
