  1. Looks so fantastic and I think I even have some sausage in the freezer. I love the color of the broth.

    I just printed off the peanut butter bars. Sound like a huge Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. Num.

  3. YUMMMMOOOO! That looks amazing! I never buy Italian sausage…I don’t know what my problem is. I think I need to start so I can make delish soup like this! Oh and you NEED to redo your french provincial set. Its seriously so easy. I just sanded the whole thing with my palm sander with 120 grit and it roughed it up just right for the paint. I didn’t even prime! It worked awesome…you WILL be posting pics when you upgrade them so I can check em out! 🙂

    • Thanks so much for stopping in Kelsey! I do NEED to redo the set. The original paint is just awful and dated. Will have to get a palm sander and get my bunz movin! I will for sure post pics 😀 Happy Weekend!!

  4. Visiting from SITS! Oh I love the look of that soup. I made a killer artichoke sausage Italian style soup a couple of weeks ago. I don’t usually go crazy over my own food but I was just so pleased with the results. This looks so similar and so yummy! Love the color of the kale as well.
