Sweet-potato cream soup

Well, I finally made some home-made soup. After peeling and boiling the potatoes, I mashed them. Then I heated the vegetable stock, added salt, the potato puree, onion, thyme, garlic, and peppercorns. Brought it to a boil, reduced the heat and let it simmer for about 30 minutes. Then I pureed part of the soup with a blender. Mixed it all together again and brought it to a boil. I reduced the heat to low and added some heavy cream. Poured it into soup bowls and added some fresh parsley. It was delicious.

I am reading a great book right now, the author's name is Tahmima Anam - I cannot seem to be able to put it down...What are you reading right now?

I found this pretty little fridge magnet last week at TJ Maxx. I love that store, probably my most favorite store for bargain hunting (or therapy, ha, ha).

Check this out - It is a beautiful store right here in town, an Artist's Coop, called Artists' Own
A beautiful place...
