Roasted Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup

I will have to try this and then comment on how I like it!

voracious veggie

Simple things that will always always brighten my day:

  • This picture of kangaroos hugging
  • A cheap manicure
  • Soul music
  • Unexpected flowers
  • A new book
  • A good margarita
  • Treat yo self. And all things Amy Poehler is involved in
  • Dinnertime with Mr. F
  • Making lists of completely unimportant things

This soup is a brightener too – in color and flavor. It’s hearty and almost a little rich, without actually having anything rich in it. Depth is added to the sweetness of the carrots and sweet potatoes by roasting and the addition of earthy cumin and a little spice from Cayenne pepper balance it all out.

Roasted Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup
– 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1-2 inch chunks
– 4 medium carrots, washed well and roughly chopped
– olive oil
– 6 whole cloves of garlic (skins on)
– 2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped

Gen Y Customer Service???

Ever wonder what happened to customer service?

I do, I wonder what it would look like and feel like to actually get good customer service. Seems like in the these days of entitled GEN Yer’s all you get is talked to like you are stupid. Why are Gen Yer’s not taught how to treat  customers?

  • Don’t walk in front of me, stop to allow me to go in front of you.
  • When I say something about my dish not being right, don’t try to tell me it wasn’t your fault just apologize and correct it. There is nothing wrong with absorbing blame even if it wasn’t your fault.
  • Go above and beyond to make a customer feel happy and special they just might come back and even ask for you next time.

To be honest, it’s ok if you get my food wrong, just correct it without incident and don’t get snippy with me and make me feel bad for asking you to do your job. In all honesty, bad customer service has become so much of the norm that my husband and I stay home rather  than go out to eat these days.
