Baby, it's cold outside...
Okay, maybe not yet. But have you seen the weather forecast for this weekend?
I must admit: I love the cold weather. I spent my first 27 years in Florida, and I'm still in the middle of my second 27 years, so I haven't grown tired of the beautiful snow and wearing 10 layers of clothing.
Another thing I LOVE about the cold weather: Cooking. Soups, stews, turkeys, lasagna... oh yeah. So here's a fast, easy and yumalicious for a crockpot bean/sausage stew that is your better-than-average stick-to-the ribs kind of meal. Look for the recipe as the first comment on this post.
I got this recipe from my friend Kerry, who is a busy mother, coach and business owner. She served it over rice, but it stands alone deliciously as well. She made it a couple of times before I finally asked for the recipe. I'm SO GLAD I did!!
