Guys. This Cajun Sausage, Sweet Potato and Kale soup! I ate this soup for days in a row and got excited before each time! The slightly smokey and spicy sausage pairs with the sweetness of the sweet potatoes and earthiness of the dino kale for a full balanced soup to warm you up on a cold day! A cold front swept across Arizona that had me bundling in layers and searching for my winter sweaters. As I complained to my family back in the Midwest, they laughed at me since it was 45 degrees in Arizona but it was 10 degrees where they lived! I am excited to go home for the holidays, but I am definitely not looking forward to the cold. After living in Los Angeles, I knew that winter was not for me. I suffered through three years of winters in Oklahoma before returning to the warm, mild winters of the Southwest! There is still something to be said about curling up by the fire in a mountain of blankets sipping on some hot coco!
I haven’t been back to Oklahoma since I moved in May. This is a really long time to be away from my family. I miss my littlest niece so much. She was 3 months old when I moved and barely knows me, but she still recognizes my voice over the phone, which melts my heart! I am the aunt to five nieces and a nephew ranging in ages zero to 18! Being an aunt is one of my favorite things! Their little smiles and squeals of delight when I visit makes me the happiest girl in the world! I hope everyone has a very happy holiday!
Now go make this Cajun Sausage, Sweet Potato and Kale Soup and enjoy the holidays!
