I started my day off on the wrong foot by making pancakes from a mix that I didn't end up liking. Then, to add insult to injury, I ate too many of the pancakes and felt uncomfortably full. Why eat so many when I didn't even like them in the first place? I don't know. Sometimes my brain malfunctions when in the presence of carbs. I added peanut butter, sliced banana, and jelly to the pancakes to cover the lack of taste, so that may have had something to do with my continuing to eat them. Either way, I ended up with an upset stomach all day. I didn't even eat lunch (which is not like me at all) and ended up just having a green smoothie in the afternoon. By dinner time, my appetite was beginning to come back, but I wanted something light and nourishing to soothe my stomach. This Sweet Potato Coconut Soup was something I'd been creating in my head since I saw Linda's Creamy Vegetable Soup last week. It's a sweet soup, but a dash of hot sauce counters the flavor and gives it a tangy edge.
