Sweet Potato Soup in the Slow Cooker

One of my favourite things about winter is soup.  I lovesoup, and its usually healthy, unless of course you eat it with half a loaf of bread and a slab of cheese!  Now that I have my slow cooker its even easier to make yummy soups.  And the extra vegetables we have to work now give so much more scope for variety than we had last year.  Sweet potato soup is one of my favourites, and this one didn’t disappoint.  I even managed to get Oscar to have one dip of toast into this one.
