dinner was [soup]erb!

With a wickedly bone chilling day to deal with, it seemed only appropriate to crank out a hearty pot of soup for dinner! Something to warm up the soul and fill up our bellies couldn’t be made quick enough…
I started by chopping up an onion, mincing some garlic and slicing some carrots. The veggies all were sautéed in a heavy pot with some olive oil until softened and the house smelled amazing. After sautéing the veggies, in went some sliced smoked turkey sausage until cooked through. Once the veggies and sausage were ready, in went the dried split peas, homemade chicken stock and water. A quick stir, then the lid went on and the soup simmered until completely cooked. To top off this luxurious soup… homemade croutons.
The first spoonful instantly warmed us up and made us forget the chilly, deep freeze that was rolling through our town!

at a low simmer…
