I love soup. The craziness of life that always seems to be associated with the fall weather also includes soup pots. Large ones. I tried this recipe from Williams-Sonoma’s blog (may they forgive the fact that I am too poor to own one of their fancy pots and instead opted for the cheap-swedish-company-with-name-in-blue-and-yellow version. I did not have a big fat turkey leg (aren’t those only at fairs?) and opted for spicy andouille sausage. My place quickly filled with savory smoky smells, and even though today’s high still went up to 80 something, nighttime it is a bit chillier and this hearty stew really hits the spot. I had 2 bowls and would’ve had more except I was really full (yes wearing elastic band pants!) This is definitely a keeper, I added no salt and used plenty of pepper. The flavors were oh so yummy!
