Making Soup

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.

  1. Thanks to you and Jen for the great sounding soup recipe. This would be one of John's favorites. Now that cold/flu season have started, we are eating most of our meals at home now. Soup always makes the house smell so good!

  3. You made me want to make soup! Mine would be vegetarian, of course, but otherwise pretty much the same smell would permeate the house. Yep, you've done it now! :-)

  16. The one plus about the weather turning colder is the chance to make soup. Love having a BIG pot of soup simmering on the stove--with plenty to freeze afterwards for those rushed days when you still want homemade soup! We've had the chance to make soup two or three times already, and once we clear Thanksgiving out of the way--including making a huge VAT of turkey stock to freeze--I'm looking forward to getting back to making soup again.

  18. We make lots of soup, and just keep eating it until it's done, usually two suppers, and then two lunches. Can't go wrong with the Italian sausages, they make everything good. Our local butcher makes some really nice ones.

  21. That sounds so good! I am making bean soup today. Hasn't been on the stove long enough to make the whole place smell delicious--but give it another hour or so. This is definitely soup weather. :)
