Cabbage, Potato, and Sausage Soup

Yesterday I was preparing for a late February blizzard dusting here in Chicago and decided a good soup would be in order. It just so happened there was an interesting recipe for potato, cabbage, and chorizo soup in last weekend’s Wall Street Journal.

[Update 3/4/2012 I submitted this recipe to SoupaPalooza.  Hope it gets noticed! Come join SoupaPalooza at TidyMom and Dine and Dish sponsored by KitchenAid, Red Star Yeast and Le Creuset] One of the many things I love about Chicago are the butcher shops.  Being a realtor is great for roaming around to different neighborhood butchersContinue reading “Black Bean and Smoked Pork Soup”
