a few things i am loving...

... I am loving that "golden hour" is at 7pm!!! Praise the Lord!!

... I am loving this teal nail color!!

... I am loving this new soup that I made for dinner last night! Yumm!
(& I love that I have left overs for lunch today!!)

Here is the recipe...

Sausage & Kale Soup

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, diced
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
¼ teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes (optional)
5 potatoes, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks
3 cans chicken broth
1 bunch kale, stemmed and roughly shredded
12 ounces of ground sausage, whatever kind you'd like: Italian, Turkey, etc...
(I used reduced-fat pork sausage & it tasted great)

In a large pot, heat oil over medium. Add diced onion and cook until soft. Add minced garlic and red-pepper flakes; cook for about a minute. Add the chicken broth & then the potatoes; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer until potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the ground sausage. Season to taste.

Once the potatoes are done, take out about ¼ to half of the soup and puree it in a blender or food processor. Return the pureed soup to the pot; add the kale and the cooked ground sausage. Allow to simmer until the kale is wilted, about 10 minutes.


Have a Happy Weekend!
