It’s finally chilly out and the girls have runny noses and so I knew I wanted to make a soup for dinner. I found this soup with sausage (my girls love sausage) while browsingDamn Delicious, one of my favorite recipe sites. I tweaked it a little but overall her recipe is phenomenal the way it is. Plus its super easy because it just sits in the crock pot for a few hours. I usually prep during nap time and let it cook until dinner. It was so “Damn Delicious”, the girls ate their entire bowl (getting veggies in them is a struggle) and even hubby went in for seconds.
Hope you enjoy
