When the rain begins to fall; plant seeds of flowers to bloom in the sun.


4 sweet potatoes
1 red onion – diced
4-5 cloves fresh garlic – chopped
2 carrots – diced
9 oz. package frozen creamed spinach
6 cups chicken broth
¼ cup fresh parsley – chopped
2 green tomatoes – diced

1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. black pepper
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat Oven 375 degrees:

Bake the sweet potatoes with the skin on until soft.  About 45-50 minutes.

When the potatoes are cooled scoop the meat out from the skins.

Heat a large soup pot with the olive oil.

Add the sweet potatoes, onion, garlic, carrots, frozen creamed spinach, parsley and tomatoes.  Cook down on low heat for a few minutes.
