I may be from the desert, but I love the cold weather. Everything about it is wonderful to me. The warm fires on rainy days, scarves that wrap all the way up to your nose, watching the trees shed all of their leaves, a closet full of boots and thick fabric’d dresses, and the house is always smelling of comforting warm food and cookies.
1 bunch of kale (torn)
1 large onion (diced)
2 carrots (diced)
1 large russet potato (diced)
1 1/2 – 2 quart chicken stock
3 springs of thyme
3/4 lb of ground sausage
1/2 c of white wine
Preheat a medium pot to medium-high heat. Add in ground sausage. Cook until brown and break up into bite size pieces. Remove sausage from pot and set aside.
Add carrots, onions, and thyme to the pot. Cook for 10 minutes or until slightly tender. Deglaze the pot with white wine and reduce for five minutes.
Add in potatoes, stock (until all veggies are completely submerged), salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked.
Add in kale and cooked sausage. After 10 minutes more you have…
Serve with bread in a very large bowl!

There are few things that are more beautiful than Atlanta changing from green to yellow, orange, and vibrant red. It is the signifier to pull out all of my winter jackets, sit on the patio, light the fire, and drink something warming. Yesterday was the perfect culmination of all of those things. The only things missing? A Christmas Tree… but I think it might be too early for that.
