Creamy Sweet Potato Curry Bisque

Today’s Soup of the Day: Creamy Sweet Potato Curry Bisque. I feel like I’m in a restaurant whenever someone says “Soup of the Day”. 🙂

First up: a new version of the baked potato called a Shingled Potato Bake. Simple (just peel, cut, oil and bake) and yummy. Best done with starchy potatoes like Idaho / Russets. Great to accompany a roast on a Sunday.
