Isn't this scene beautiful?! I so wish I were there.
So I have this cookbook that I bought last year called, "Family Feasts for $75 a Week" by Mary Ostyn. I've only used a few of the recipes, but they are pretty decent. And she gives lots of money saving tips, which is awesome.
I tried a recipe tonight that I have been eyeing for some time. It turned out good. A really comfortable soup for a chilly day. (or a busy day!)
1 lb. dried white beans
14 oz. can crushed tomatoes or 2 c. fresh cut tomatoes (I used fresh)
1 T. salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T. dried sage
2 T. olive oil
1 lb. smoked sausage links, cut into discs
8 c. water
Put all ingredients into crock pot and stir well, mixing everything up. Turn on HIGH and leave alone for 6-8 hours.
Next time I think I will add some spinach leaves and serve with cornbread.
