Sundays Soup Pot

Do you like this soda???? I love pop in the bottles vs cans....how 'bout you?

My mom requested that I make this soup for her.....a friend passed it along to her and not being a cook herself I offered.....

Here's the recipe for you if you're interested.... if you share it with anyone...I hope they appreciate it.

Olive Garden Style Toscana Soup

2 3/4 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
2 medium russet potatoes
2 cups chopped kale
1 pound sausage...I used spicy but sweet will work too
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

combine stock and cream in large pot over medium heat
slice unpeeled potatoes into quarter slices and then those into quarters and add to soup

saute sausages, when cooked and cooled slice at an angle in 1/4 inch slices and add to soup
add chopped kale to soup and salt 'n pepper flakes
let simmer 2 - 4 hours until potato and kale are cooked.

we found a new place to eat  - cute and fun little place .... a roadside stop.... 
no kale on the menu....but the french fries were perfect

I have always thought that pop in bottles taste better...I'm old enough to remember at the service (gas) station, reaching my little hand into one of the old pop coolers with the water in it, now that really tasted good! xo

I love Squirt and Fresca. I feel so retro when I say that, and bottles are just so darn retro.
I also like my beer better out of bottles, although, draft beer is my fave.

I am so hungry now after seeing the sandwich and fries. I hope you slathered them with loads of salt and ketchup!

Squirt is my favorite kind of pop!

Well, Thanks friend!
Now I want a burger, which would roughly take like 7 hours to burn off the treadmill....Great pics and I love the pop stuff.
That soup sounds delish too:)
