Yummy Potato Soup

We had some potatoes in our CSA. I purchased sweet potatoes at the Farmers Market from a local vendor. Audrey's daddy grilled for us and we had twice baked potatoes. I made a batch of Fauxfredo the other day. 

Why am I sharing all of this?

We had an abundance of cooked root vegetables (plus cauliflower) in our fridge that I needed to find something to do with. The girls are not huge potato fans and I knew I could not eat it all. The next best thing is to make soup. I tossed everything plus a few carrots that had seen better days into a slow cooker added chicken broth and went to work. 

When I returned home Maurene helped me blend the lovely mess into a fun soup. I love that I was able to use up leftovers for a yummy soup and Maurene loved operating the food processor. Should have taken a video. She was so funny playing with the safety catch to make it start and stop.

Soup, it's what's for dinner!

Do you have any fabulous tips to use up leftovers? Or a an ingredient you make too much of to use in several recipes?
