But for now, forget about the #STRANGEbutgood...you wanna know what I absolutely love, yet frequently forget, about making soup?

It’s SO flippin’ EASY!

And if you plop your ingredients in a slow cooker, it’s virtually IMPOSSIBLE to mess up…even if, say you forget all about it while you become totally engrossed in your very first episode of Downtown Abbey…hypothetically speaking of course!

Now it’s time for some #strangebutFUN…
I’m gonna learn ya the ways in how to be SOUPER! 😉

First, gather up your ingredients…

Sweet Potato

One ginormous sweet potato…check!


Half a red onion (and plenty of curse words for chopping)…check!

Black Beans
