Friday's are for Fun!!
Today I get to hang with some of my favorite people. No work for this girl today!! The "Downtown Abbey" girls will meet for lunch at a friends home and start Season 2, after that maybe some shopping in the afternoon and then I am cooking dinner for special friends. This will be the first time since Jeffrey has been gone that I am hosting at my home by myself. It's time. I love to cook and share so it will be a great evening. Besides we are having "Angel Chicken"....so the heavenly realms will be represented too!! I hope your Friday is shaping up to be as good as mine is going to be!!
Food for Friday - Week 9
This week I made soup because I had a bad cold and wanted something warm and comforting. Tulsa was also predicted for snow but it went north of us....it still has been a "cold" week so soup was very welcome.
I got this recipe many years ago from one of Jeff's partner's wives, Diane Erbacher. It is very quick and easy and delicious. I make it at least one time every winter. So let's get started!!
12 ounces of Italian Sausage ( I use Turkey Sausage)
2-3 medium Zucchini (Cut into Chunks)
2 - cans diced tomatoes with Rosemary and Oregano
1 package Onion Soup Mix
1/2 tsp Italian Seasonings
I weighed the sausages to get the correct amount. It was about 3 links. I froze the rest for future use. My son-in-law loves Brats and Sausages on the grill so.....Jon will be here the first weekend in April moving their storage from Chicago to Tulsa in anticipation of their complete move in June and we will have a picnic on the patio!!
Crumble the sausage (Remove from the casing). Brown in a Dutch oven. Remove and drain on paper towels if needed.
Add 1 envelope of onion soup mix to the Dutch oven mixture.
Put the Italian Seasoning into the Pot at this time.
Complete the mixture by adding 3-4 cups of water to the pot and stirring to combine.
Bring the soup to a bubble then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover and cook for 15-20 minutes to cook the zucchini.
I like to top each bowl with shredded Parmesan.
Since I had lots of leftovers I put some in the freezer for the next time I needed some "Comfort"!!
I hope you try this soup and enjoy it as much as I did. It's Friday and my cold is much better so the soup "worked"....that and three days, kleenex and Nyquil!!!
