Crock Pot Sausage, Spinach and Potato Soup

 Sausage, spinach and Creamer potatoes are slow cooked all day, to create a creamy and hearty soup.




Brrr, has it sure has cooled down the last few days. This spring has been a roller coaster ride of nice weather and cold weather. We will have a day with record breaking highs, then within 24 hrs we are down to below zero (that's zero celsius). Needless to say, it's been difficult deciding what to cook lately, LOL. One thing I can always count on, is having to use the crock pot, at least once a week.

Since the weather has turned cool again, I took the opportunity to make some soup. Now I am a total sucker for a good potato soup. There is just something about a creamy and hearty potato soup, that hits the spot on a crisp day. We had recently purchased delicious Italian sausages from a school fundraiser and I thought they would make a wonderfully flavourful potato soup. I love using baby potatoes in soups, because the skin is so thin that you don't have to peel them.

This soup is simple, yet is seriously delicious, thanks to the potatoes. They cooked up perfectly in the crock pot and the thin skins melt in your mouth while enjoying the soup. They absorbed the wonderful flavour of the sausage and were the perfect way to add a delicious and comforting heartiness to this soup.



Sausage, Potato and Spinach Soup

3 large mild Italian sausages
1 bag baby potatoes 
1 small onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbs Tarragon and Chive seasoning (or use 2 tsp of each)
5 C chicken stock
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 C sour cream
1 1/2 C frozen spinach (or 2 C fresh)

Remove the Italian sausage from their casings and brown in a skillet, over medium high heat. 

Add browned sausage meat to a 6 qt crock pot, along with the baby potatoes, onion, garlic, chicken stock, tarragon and chive seasoning, salt and pepper. Cook on LOW for 6-8 hrs; until potatoes are fork tender.

Using a potato masher, smash potatoes in the soup, leaving some big rustic chunks. Stir in the spinach and sour cream, cover and cook until spinach is warm; about an additional 10 minutes. Serve while hot.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.
