This is my week of freezer-stocking so I am making several soups. The Book is very insistent about pairing sausage with kale. I suppose it a very classic combination, but I find it so disappointing. Sausage is high on the list of foods I love, and kale is very, very low on the list. Tough, bitter greens are just not my thing. Surprisingly though, it wasn't really the kale that I didn't like about this dish. It just wasn't very flavorful. The broth lacked depth and body. It was essentially seasoned water. The chorizo was good (of course!) but not good enough to make the dish worthwhile. The potatoes helped the situation a bit, but there weren't enough of them. This soup didn't taste bad, it just didn't taste like much at all.
Here is the recipe.
I can't believe it is the middle of the 6th week of the semester... Wow, time flies! I still have that feeling that the term just started. Perhaps I will have the feeling the whole way through. I think actually that it has something to do with the weather. It is still so warm here! The high on Friday is predicted to be 86 degrees! In October! When the weather is so summery, I can't shake the feeling that it must be summer. Well, summer with calculus lectures, research meetings, office hours, and seminars, apparently.
This week has been really busy, and I am exhausted! I have a couple more busy days ahead of me, but then on Friday a certain special visitor is flying in, so I plan to have a fun, relaxing weekend! That will be such a treat!
