I love sweet potatoes, squash, and just about every harvest veggie, so I decided to whip up an autumn soup. I didn't follow a recipe and definitely added too much seasoning (the last soup I made on my own was a little bland...definitely overcompensated this time). We liked it, but both agreed that next time I will go a little lighter on the spices and throw in some penne noodles to give it that extra oomph.
I haven't graduated from novice level quite yet. There is always room for growth.
