Ashley had recently been saying she wanted some sweet potatoes. We do not have them often, not for any particular reason though. We all like them and they are a healthy option. Now that I am starting to feel better and regain some strength, I decided it was a good time to succumb to the requests for sweet potato soup.
We coupled the soup with the equally starchy, New England shepherds pie! A layer of mock meat, a layer of creamed corn, topped with a layer of thick mashed potatoes! Growing up in Maine, this was what all shepherds pie was like. It has always been a favorite of mine and it makes anough for us to take to work as well!
