We had some snow flurries yesterday, and we heard the roads were slick so we stayed home all day. Far Guy shoveled the walk and patio.
There are some advantages to staying home all day. We had time to make soup. We get along fairly well in the kitchen. ( No knife or frying pan fights.) Have you all discovered the Reynolds Crock Pot Inserts? We really like them….makes clean up a breeze. We cooked enough soup for two nights. It made the house smell so good and was done perfectly after my afternoon nap.
Which one did we make this time? Italian Sausage Soup 1 pound of Italian sausage and some bacon fried up with some onion. We only use half of this mixture and freeze the other half to make soup again in a couple weeks. Put in crockpot meat mixture, 2 plus cups of chicken broth, 3/4 cup cream, 2 cups (handfuls) baby spinach, 3 – 4 potatoes sliced thin, season and stir. If you want to hurry it along cook your potatoes before adding them. If you add too much spinach the broth turns a little green…but we don’t mind cooked spinach. Chance even likes a little of the broth over his food. The recipe also calls for garlic but we never add any. This is a recipe from our youngest daughter Jen who is a really good cook.
