"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is a good, hearty soup for a cold day. Not overly sweet but very tasty if you like sweet potatoes, which is one of my favorites. You can substitute skim milk for reduced calories. Similar in taste to Pumpkin Soup and Butternut Squash Soup.

Memories:

Do you remember the bottle of "cough medicine" in Mr. Welch's desk drawer?

Remember the Woolworth Store - The Dime Store, to us. I loved going to Norton because they had TWO dime stores - Heaven on earth.
