I also have some pretty exciting news! I was given the Stylish Blogger Award this past week from two amazing bloggers, Kim from Liv Life and Elyse from The Cultural Dish! I am entirely honored and can't wait to pass this award on!
Roasted Sweet Potato & Chorizo Soup
recipe by Sabrina W. for eat.drink.and be merry.
yields 6 to 8 servings
2 lbs sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
3 shallots, quartered
2 cartons (32 oz each) chicken broth
3 garlic cloves, peeled
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary
2 sprigs of fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons brown sugar
pinch red pepper flakes
1 cup sliced chorizo
salt & pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Drizzle a baking sheet with olive oil. Arrange sweet potatoes, garlic, and shallots on sheet. Toss with the olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven until potatoes are fork tender, about 30 to 35 minutes.
In a large pot, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil and add chorizo. Saute for 5 minutes or until juices render from sausage. Add roasted vegetables and stir. Add dry spices and brown sugar and stir. Pull fresh herbs away from their stems and add to pot. Stir and pour in chicken broth, bring to a small boil and let simmer on low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. With a hand blender, puree soup until smooth. For a smoother soup, you might want to pass the soup through a strainer. Enjoy! :)
Now, there are a few instructions that come along with this award. 1) is to pass this award to 10 other bloggers and 2) is to list 7 things about me.
It was very hard to only pick 10 blogs....however here are a few that I have come to love and follow! ( In no particular order)
7 things about me...
1.) I cannot watch scary movies, I get wayyy to stressed out!
2.) Some of my favorite bands are Coldplay, Pink Floyd, and DMB.
3.) I have become obsessed with True Blood (for some reason this show doesn't scare me!)
4.) I drive a bright green (same color as my blog) Jeep Wrangler and will probably always drive one!
5.) I LOVE Audrey Hepburn and have photos of her all over our bedroom.
6.) I love to laugh which is one of the many reasons I married Eric, he makes me laugh everyday!
