Chilled Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup; pork loin; salad
My friend Mo's Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup
This is really good hot or cold.
1 large or 2 small sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
2 carrots, peeled and cut into cube
4 cloves of garlic
Boil above until soft. Puree. Add chicken broth to the pot and stir.
(I actually boiled it in 3 1/2 cups of chicken stock and then pureed it right in the pot with a stick blender)
Heat through (even if you're going to eat it cold). Season with salt, pepper, fresh dill, and the juice of one lime (I thought half a lime was sufficient).
Hormel Mesquite BBQ seasoned pork loin, grilled
Mixed baby greens, cucumber, cherry tomatoes and scallions, dressed with salt, pepper and balsamic dressing
