Sweet potato and coconut soup and another sunny ramble.

Pinching a friend's photo as it is the only one I have. 

A bit more virtuous than the previous recipe, but still completely delicious, surprisingly healthy, and if you eat it all day the popcorn probably isn't as awful as it might be for those of us attempting to shrink a bit. 

Bake 4 sweet potatoes. 
Meanwhile, dice and fry an onion, 2 ribs of celery, one sweet pepper, and a good shake of ancient garam masala powder from the back of the pantry. 

Add stock, then add potatoes, and top up with stock or water until potatoes are covered. Blitz with a hand blender. 

Add a can of coconut milk (I used half fat stuff which worked beautifully), taste, choke on strings from the potato skin, and blend in Mog's super whizzy beast blender. Or don't be like me, and do peel the potatoes before throwing them in the pot. 

Bring back to the boil, then allow to simmer for a moment or two whilst you utterly fail to find the thermos flask. Decant into two smaller flasks, then share with a friend whilst enjoying a jolly good walk around Besselsleigh. 

Definitely best shared and slurped outdoors. About 3/4 of the way around here, ideally, after an unfortunate but not unpleasant detour which handily pushed our arrival at the picnic field back to lunch time.
