Sweet Potato Soup

November , 2021

What is November known for?

It is Adopt a Turkey Month, National Diabetes Month, and National Novel Writing Month.  It is also National Peanut Butter Lovers Month and Author’s Day on November 1st.  I’m going to use this one, Sweet Potato Awareness Month.  I have a great recipe for Sweet Potato Soup.  Give it a try.

 Sweet Potato Soup

1 Tablespoon bacon fat

1 cup onions, chopped

2 ribs celery, chopped

1 pound sweet potatoes, peeled and diced

Puree in blender and reheat.
