OK, I know, many of us are still clinging on to the last hint of summer and it is way too early to throw in the towel and acknowledge that the autumn chill is in the air and winter in not far behind. I get it. BUT! I love soup and have already started collecting recipes for the season – like this one for Sweet Potato Soup from the fine folks at Southern Living magazine.

About the recipe for Sweet Potato Soup from Southern Living:

“Sweet potatoes, buttery Yukon Gold potatoes, healthy carrots, and warm spices all combine to create a flavorful and savory comforting soup, perfect for cold winter evenings. In less than an hour you can have a pot of delicious creamy soup ready for your family. Round out the meal with a loaf of warm bread. This recipe calls for toasted pecans, a favorite addition to soups and salads. Go ahead and toast more than the required amount, and freeze the extra pecans in a freezer safe container, or zip-top bag. This way, you will have toasted pecans on hand whenever you need them. This is a handy tip for toasted coconut, as well. This creamy soup makes excellent leftovers, to take to work or anywhere on the go.”
