Say you have chicken stock sitting in the fridge right now.

You just emptied several bowls filled with science experiments (ewwww) from the back of the fridge a couple of days ago, and you’ll be darned if you’re gonna let that chicken stock meet the same fate.

So clearly, supper is going to be some kind of soup.

But what kind? You’ve served chicken five nights in a row, and the family might revolt if you do it again tonight.

You flip through recipe books, looking for something that…

a) you actually have most of the ingredients for, and…

b) the family would actually be willing to eat (or at least try).

Well, if you’re looking for a delicious soup with pretty common ingredients that your family (of all ages) is sure to love, you’ve found it.

It’s a little different from the same ol’ chicken soup, but this hearty soup is just what the doctor ordered for a quick and easy night (that will give your bored taste buds a little thrill!).

Quick and Easy Sausage Sweet Potato Soup

All you really need to know about this soup is that it’s pretty frugal. 

You can throw it together, easy peasy!  Dicing the sweet potatoes is the only effort you’ll need.

I swear by this tool for chopping up potatoes in no time flat.

Everyone in my house, from the picky 1 year old to the picky 16 year old and everyone in between (oh, Hubby, too!) emptied their bowls!

(Even the kids who spent the afternoon saying “sausage and sweet potatoes??  ewww”)
