Snow, Snow, and More Snow

Another week, another snowstorm, and another snow day!  It seems, with work and everything else, that I haven't had time to cook much of anything lately.  Certainly I haven't been canning.  Today I'd planned on making a big batch of kale and sausage soup for dinner but, with the kids getting out of school early and already about 6 inches of snow on the ground, it seemed like a better option for lunch.  We'll have pancakes for dinner, always a treat!

This is probably the best batch of this I've made.

Kale and Sausage Soup

1 onion, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
2 carrots, diced
6 sweet Italian sausages, removed from casings
1 quart turkey stock
1 quart chicken stock
2 quarts water
1 large can of cannellini beans (1 pound, 13 oz) - undrained
kale
1/2 cup orzo
salt, pepper, bay and winter savory to taste

Saute the onion, celery and carrots in some olive oil.  Add the sausage and brown.  Add the liquids, beans, and spices and simmer for 30-40 minutes.  Add the kale and the orzo, simmer for 15 minutes.  Serve over slices of Italian bread.

My thoughts are with all of you in the South suffering with all that ice.  Stay safe!
