Foodie Friday -Hearty Sausage and Kale Soup

I don’t know about you guys, but I have been in such a soup kind of mood lately! With it being the middle of winter, the cold grey days are starting to get to us. There is nothing like coming home to a quick soup that tastes like it has been simmering for hours.

This Hearty Sausage and Kale soup was created accidentally a few weeks ago when I realized I had taken nothing out for dinner but still wanted something loaded with flavour. Luckily for us we always seem to have at least one bunch of kale in our crisper, and since we make our own sausage, we always have some links in the freezer! So I grabbed some of the sausage, defrosted in super quick, and got to work on this yummy, flavour packed soup!

Enjoy <3

 

Fall Vineyard

Thanksgiving is upon us!

I can’t believe that it is already Thanksgiving weekend! This calls for a special edition of Foodie Friday! This week I am showing you two easy sides to dress up your bland Thanksgiving table…I know that sounds offensive, but really let me take a stab at it here.

Every year you have a giant delicious turkey in the middle of your table surrounded by what? Mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, gravy, parsnips and maybe some carrots…am I right? Do you see the colour scheme there!? Now, if cranberry sauce is the only thing adding colour to your Thanksgiving table this post is for you!

I made two dishes for you to take to your dinner and really impress the family…this is especially good for all you newlyweds still trying to make an impression on the in-laws! The first is a Sauteed Brussel Sprout dish with Pancetta and the second is a delicious Kale with Cranberries and Toasted Pecans…mmm! (Click the recipe link above for everything you need to make these dishes!).

Grab a glass of wine, keep the bottle handy for the second recipe, and enjoy! After all, everybody needs a little creativity in their lives <3
