Anniversary & Stew

Good Morning Lovelies!

I apologize for the lack of posts the last few days! Things have been quite busy with my Husband working some overtime, a bday party this past Sunday and with our Anniversary! So we celebrated being married for 8 years yesterday!! Wow has that time flown by. It seems like just yesterday I was walking down a candlelit aisle in the cute little cabin/cathedral we got married in. Husband and I were talking yesterday about how amazing it is that we thought we were such "grown-ups" back then. I was a child-bride at just 22 and he was 24. To look back we were so young!! Life can be pretty amazing like that =) So in the meantime, while I'm preparing the weeks posts, I thought I would leave you with a recipe for the yummy stew I'll be making for dinner tonight! I have this awesome Popsugar app for my iphone and I'm always on it. I found the recipe the other day and have been dying to make it since. You can find the full printable recipe over at YumSugar, just click on the title below the photo. 

White Bean & Sausage Stew


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 12-ounce package fully cooked chicken sausage links, sliced
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 19-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed
1 14½-ounce can low-sodium chicken broth
1 14½-ounce can diced tomatoes
1 bunch kale leaves, torn into 2-inch pieces
1/4 teaspoon Kosher salt and black pepper
1 loaf country bread (optional)

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat.
  2. Add the sausage and cook, stirring once, until browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes more.
  3. Add the beans, broth, and tomatoes and their liquid and bring to a boil. Add the kale and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper and simmer, stirring occasionally, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve with the bread, if using.
Serves 4.
