Reading??? Reading?? What's that?

                                                             From the City. 

Alright, I'll admit it, I haven't read a book in three (er, 5) months.  Haven't even tried to get through one.  Since returning to work, all I do in the evenings is melt into a pile of mush on the couch watching tv and working on my laptop.  Horrible right? I can't even use our sleeping arrangement as an excuse anymore because Theo now sleeps in his own bed.  

So i've decided something's gotta give. 
The book is Free for All by Janet Poppendieck and the timeframe is exactly one month starting today. It's like 10 measly pages a day, nothing right?? Try telling me that when the new season of cougar town is on. 

In other news, here's a really good soup recipe.  Kale, potatoes and sausage, gooooood.  
1 large onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves minced
2 Sausages minus the casings
2 large potatoes cubed
1 large bunch of kale, washed and chopped
3 cups stock or water
1/2 cup cream
salt and pepper to taste

Saute onions and garlic with sausage (minus the casings) for 3 to 5 minutes until sausage is no longer pink.  
Add potatoes, mix well, making sure to get that good pork fat all over those taters.
Add stock and kale.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a simmer.
Allow to cook for a good 45-50 minutes so all those good flavours can mingle.
I pureed the soup for just a minute or two to make the kale easier for Theo to eat and its also a good way to make your soup creamy healthily.  
Add cream or milk or soy (whatever you like and have on hand)
Season and enjoy.

happy tuesday everyone,
