I love this recipe – it comes from a good friend back near South Bend. I miss her dearly. I hope someday to meet up with her again. She is such a sweet and spiritual person. At anyrate I had a ton of sweet potato’s from our City Fresh pick ups the last few weeks.  I had thought about doing a frittata recipe that I have but because of the recent cold weather I decide on soup. Note: Today is beautiful and 73 – go figure.
