Soup and salad: 'cause it's not really hot in our condo

Pin It It's been hot, but not in the cave that is our condo. Not only does it naturally stay cool in there, but on Monday we finally put on the air. So it's been nice and chilly.

Despite the weather outside, last night I decided to make some soup, 1) My husband is battling a cold and 2) I had some yams that I didn't want to go bad. I'd like to think reason 1 was the true motivator, but I can't be sure.

I made some sweat potato soup. I looked at some recipes and then decided to not follow any. I first sauteed some onions, celery and a couple of baby carrots. I then added some yams, a few red potatoes, chicken broth, salt, pepper and curry powder. Everything cooked for about 30 minutes and was pureed, with my lovely and mess-free immersion blender.

And my husband made a nice tomato, mozzarella, heart of palms and basil salad, topped with some fancy balsamic vinegar from our Italian honeymoon.
