Kale and Sausage Soup, Snow and Snow.

November 15, 2012

November. Snow. AND it is almost Thanksgiving! Turkey and all.

I am heading to Austin, TX this weekend to visit Alden and Scott. Ella will be joining us on Monday. It is going to be an epic week of Hall-sister adventures. Complete with viewing of the most recent Twilight movie…yes. That is what I just said. I couldn’t be more excited for this trip. Also, to get one last breath of warmish air. As it is freeeezing here in the mountains!

Perfect for ski season…if it could just hurry up.

We got about 15″ over the weekend, starting Saturday early morning and heading on through Sunday afternoon. I pretended to be snowed in and lounged around watching ski movies and drinking warm drinks. Awesome.

I also made some yummy soup on Friday night, which proved to be a boon for the snow day weekend. In case you’re looking for an easy soup for the coming cold, check this out!

Kale and Sausage Soup

4 waxy potatoes, chopped

one onion, chopped

two garlic cloves, minced

5 cups chicken stock and 2 cups water

half a 16oz roll of breakfast sausage

one bunch kale

2 tsp red pepper flakes

salt and pepper to taste

Directions: Heat onion and garlic with olive oil until they start to soften. Add potatoes and broth and bring to a boil for 10min. Using and immersion blender, or a regular one, blend until some chunks still remain. Cook sausage in a pot and add potato/onion mixture. Add water if needed for more liquid and the red pepper flakes. Add kale (I broke it roughly while I added it). Boil until kale is wilted. Serves 4-5

Sausage is almost right there with bacon in my book. YUM. Plus the goodness of the dark green kale and the warmth of the entire soup. Basically just what I needed to be eating as I holed up inside and watched the snow fall. AND super simple. Also…soup season has begun. Sorry.

Evin wasn’t as excited about the snow..

Enjoy!
