Head over heals.

In love.

With all things fall.


With monkey bread. (recipe coming, as soon as I get it right!)


With black nail polish.

And with my crockpot.

soup pot

Which, in turn, made me fall head over heals in love with this soup.


You guys, it’s kind of sweet. Not like monkey bread sweet – but just warm and cuddly and sweet. Can you describe a soup like that? Whatever, I’m doing it.


Sweet Potato & Lentil Soup

  • 1 sweet potato, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 1 c lentils
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 1 t garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 t ginger, freshly grated
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/2 t dried thyme
  • 1/2 t cumin
  • 5-6 cups vegetable broth

Put all ingredients into a slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours, or until vegetables are squishy and…well, sweet.
