Rainy Day Paleo Soup

You guys would die if you walked into our house. I almost wanted to take a picture of how 
messy-gross it is, but I didn't. So no, I'm not inviting any of you over.

Just to give you a piece of what you may see...

1) There are 2 road bikes and a tandem bike scattered in the living room...
one is half in the kitchen, half in the living room. Weird.
2) Nothing and I mean nothing, has been put away in the kitchen. In fact, we're stacking up dishes 
in the sink all while we're pulling the clean ones out of the dishwasher. Sick.
3) We have about 4 projects going on. Part of them are dispersed on the kitchen table, part in 
the living room (on the ground so there's limited walking space), and the rest of the shit is 
lined throughout the basement.
4) Our rooms are cluttered with "ideas" of what we want to pack, which means clothes on the floor 
and other items nearby. We're going to go through a trial run of packing tonight. If that goes 
well at least some of the clutter will hide in our backpacks for the time being.
5) And if you absolutely had to stop by to use our bathroom, I'd actually make you go
outside. Our bathroom needs to be cleaned, bad. Ok fine, I'd at least let you use it
but quickly and with your eyes closed!

Now you may want to come over after you hear about this recipe...but I'll probably eat
it all before you get here, so don't bother getting in your car.

Rainy Day Sweet Potato Soup & Pulled Pork
1-2lb pork loin
1 yellow onion, sliced
2 C beef broth (or 3 C if you have a 2lb pork)
1 tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
salt and pepper, to taste

3 large sweet potatoes or yams, diced
1/2 yellow onion, sliced
1.5 cans coconut milk
1 C veggie broth
1 1/2 tsp garlic, minced
2.5 tbsp dried basil
salt and pepper, to taste

Place all the pork ingredients into our crock pot and leave on low for 8-10 hours or
6-8 on high. Check readiness, then serve with the soup!

Place the yams and onions in a microwavable safe bowl and heat until cooked through.
Place all the ingredients together in your vitamix or blendtec. Let it roll! Dash it
with salt and basil, then serve with a little pulled pork on top!

Today Casey, Evy, and myself are going to visit Uncle Ty/my husband at school for a lunch date.
Hope you all have a extra special rainy day!
