Sweet Potato Soup

I have discovered the perfect soup to prepare for the first weekend of fall. Sweet potato soup is creamy, rich and absolutely delicious.  I served cornbread with it, and the two complemented the fall feel.   My culinary skills shined tonight.  This easy dish was met with the rave reviews!
