#RECIPEFRIDAY: Curried Sweet Potato Soup (dairy-free)

You know what's amazing when it's cool out...

Soup.

A nice, warm bowl of fresh, homemade soup.


Since we had The Masta over for lunch this past weekend for sandwiches....

On homemade Olive sourdough bread of course :)


I thought...

In a spur of the moment decision...

Why not make soup too.

I mean...

Seeing that everyone (most) enjoy a nice cup or bowl of something warm...

Especially when the temperatures drop and...

When (perhaps) you're feeling a little under the weather (me, right now - wanh wanh)...

A great way to make yourself feel better...

Is soup. (Right?! Right.)

So I got all soupy and made this....


A perfect share for #RECIPEFRIDAY wouldn't you say?
