Kellymac's Autumn Harvest Soup

“This is a recipe that I came up with before going out of town. I needed to get rid of some perishable ingredients and didn't want to have to go to the store to buy anything else. I started with a pear and sweet potato soup recipe and improvised from there. Please let me know your alterations and suggestions. I hope you enjoy this recipe!”
