Tuscan Sausage Soup
It has been a crazy week for me so far. Work has basically been back-to-back meetings all day while trying to fit in actual work in the first and last hour of the day. My internet went down Tuesday afternoon and a technician couldn’t come out until noon on Wednesday. This meant I scrambled to find a place to work. Luckily we have friends who live close and allowed me to come over and steal their internet for a few hours each day. I’m back online and hope I don’t have any other surprises.
Moving on to today: Happy Valentine’s Day! We don’t buy cards or gifts and this year we haven’t even discussed the day. I assume we will be roasting the chicken I have brining for dinner. No special plans over here!
This is the second sausage soup I’ve posted in a short time frame but they are both different and so good! Let me know what you think.
