This is the time of year when I start making foods that are a little heavier ~ it’s something about the way I nest ~ fall = hearty in my mind.  I have a thing for sweet potatoes {they are full of nutrients} and apples which are especially delicious right now.  Combine the two and a few other ingredients and you have a nice, rich and hearty soup that can stand alone as a meal or serve as the first course of a larger multi-course meal.

My family really liked this and even commented that it filled them up ~ which having a family of all boys means a lot ~ NOTHING ever fills them ~they are bottomless pits at times.
