Our original plan was to move to Colorado May 3rd after Nathan's graduation. During spring break we went to visit and look for apartments.
I also had an interview as a weight loss consultant. <---- How fun would that be???
To make a long story short, we got the apartment we wanted but would have to start paying rent in April. I also got the job I wanted but would have to start in April. Funny how things work out huh?
So next week we will be packing up and moving out!! I am so excited but also very sad to leave some great people behind.
A friend threw us a B.Y.O.S Party!! (Bring Your Own Soup)
There were lots of yummy soups, mine was homemade Zuppa Tuscana!!
Not to brag, but I actually preferred it to Olive Garden..... but that's just me! :)
And bonus points for soup with lots of leafy greens! That doesn't happen too often!
After posting the picture, I got some requests for the recipe. It was so easy it made me kick myself for not thinking of it before. It will be a regular winter meal in our home from now on!!
You will need:
1 lb Italian sausage
1 large onion, diced
4 cloves of garlic, minced
4 cups reduced sodium chicken broth
4-6 sm/md potatoes, cut into 1/4inch pieces
2 cups chopped kale
1 cup heavy cream
- Simply brown you sausage, leaving at least two tablespoons of grease.
- Add onion and garlic, cook over medium heat until soft and fragrant.
- Add chicken broth, bring to a boil.
- Add potatoes, boil for 10-15 min, until tender.
- Reduce heat. Add kale and cream
It was a hit with everyone and the party was a blast!!
And yes, one of the games made me tie a kitchen towel around my neck, wear someone else's sunglasses and a set of keys on my head. Don't ask!! :)
P.S. I also had some cream left over.... stay tuned for another recipe!!
