Hi All, When we were recently in south Texas, we visited our old and dear friends, award-winning writers W. C. Jameson and Laurie Wagner Buyer Jameson. Laurie made us the most delicious sweet potato-chili soup for lunch. For those of you who like hot food, try this recipe. It’s easy to make and just wonderful! But test your jalapeno first, so you can adjust the “hotness” to your taste. In a sauce pan, place: Two medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks. One jalapeno, diced. Add enough vegetable broth to cover vegetables. Simmer until vegetables are soft. Throw in the blender and blend until smooth. You may want to add more vegetable broth if you like thinner soups. Serve hot! We hope you’re thinking about how to protect yourself during the upcoming All Hallows Eve, when the ghosts rise to walk the earth. (Personally, we’re thinking of gorging on lots of Snickers bars). Cheers, Mike and Kathy
