Cajun Sweet Potato Soup , Plaincourtville style.

Well. I finally Put my new cookbook to use. There are many great recipes in the book, but I decided to make a soup for my Mother-in-law that resides in a nursing home not too far from our house. This definately is different than anything I have ever eaten, but it really is good... Enjoy the pics and the video, also thanks for making a good BBQ forum, GREAT!!!!

Well I just got back from the nursing home and the soup was a hit. They loved it. I think I am going to make them a different soup every weekend... Make me happy to see the elderly smile.
