Healing the Body


The last week or so, our house has been down for the count.  Bronchitis, sinus stuff, and wheezing.  Both of us have had this.

Today, I felt a tiny bit better, despite my back muscles being sore from coughing.  I decided to take advantage of this and try to make butternut squash and sweet potato soup.

Last Black Friday, I bought an immersion blender.  It has been money well spent.  I’ve made lots of mayo and homemade soups.  An immersion blender is a must for this recipe.

Short version: I went to Publix and bought two containers of precut veggies.  One container was butternut squash.  The other was sweet potato.  I threw those containers in my pot along with three cans of chicken broth.  I boiled it for about 40 minutes.  Then, I turned down the heat and let my immersion blender to do the rest.  In less than an hour, we had homemade, fresh, delicious soup! I may make large quantities of this next time and freeze it.

I added a tiny bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper to the mix once it was finished.

Let me know if you all try this.  It was tasty!
