Two Lazy, yet Delicious Meals

Meal One: I dreamed of soup

All weekend my friend Shana and I talked about a soup with turkey sausage and kale, like to the point where it was all I could think about.  Snow was in the forecast so I went out to the store before all the crazy bread and milk people got there.  I didn’t get the turkey sausage I wanted, but I found a nice precooked Organic Mild Italian Chicken Sausage.  I put everything in the pot and let it simmer on the stove while we went sledding and shoveling.  Peeling off all the wet clothes to lay on the radiator and then diving into a steamy bowl of soup with crunchy rolls, was pretty much spot on for the day.

Eats – Thanksgiving

I didn’t take a picture of the Thanksgiving meal at my house, but here is a nice picture of my mom’s table… she’s retired and has her shit together.

Last year’s Thanksgiving involved a horrific return journey from Alexandria to the Valley, during which we broke down twice with our sometimes spastic dog and 8 month old baby.  The 2nd time we broke down was at some sort of park and ride/goat pen/used needle depository.
