I was feeling like soup! Hadley is sick- she hasn’t ate anything- Harper will eat what I put in from of her and Dennis is working- so I get to pick!!! So its ZUPPA!!!! I love this stuff from Olive Garden! One good thing about living in Iowa is the meat its wonderful! I know where my meat is coming from because we butcher hogs and steers that were grown 3 miles from our house. There are lockers in every little town- our local one was in Bizzare Foods- they make the most amazing brats! I also can get it MSG free and when you battle migraines like my niece and I do that is a great thing to be able to do. Its is a large investment in the beginning but you end up paying like $3 per lb for everything- but when you butcher 1000 lbs!
- I used regular sausage- not spicy – my family are wimps!
- I didn’t have heavy whipping cream so 2% milk had to do- whole milk would have been better- but it is what it is.
- I didn’t put the Kale in the whole thing- my family won’t like it, but I do so I took enough kale for my bowl and added a little water, put it in the microwave for 45 secs- it was perfect!
- I didn’t use a slow cooker- did it on my stove top, it was quick- 30 minutes to make sure my potatoes were soft then made everything else- 45 minutes tops! But- fry your sausage in a different pan- my soup turned darker.
Easy- super easy- Hadley could do it!
Did they Clean Their Plates?
EVERYONE!!! YES! They all loved it- but remember I’m the only one who had kale in mine! It added a nice little flavor to it, but the green scared off the rest of the family.
Keep or Delete
KEEP!- I loved it! I will make it again- it would be great for a pot luck at school for the slow cooker!
