Zuppa Toscana Soup

Both kids are sick - not fun! Savannah got sick on Monday, so I ended up staying home with her that day. Tuesday she was well enough to go back to Grandma's, then today Connor started getting sick at 3 a.m. and Savannah got sick at about 7 p.m. Both have been fine since then so I'm hoping (cross fingers & toes) that they are both going to be done with this! I hate when my babies are sick but the worst is when you can tell they don't feel good because their eyes are all watered up, that was the look on Connor's face all day today.

So on Monday I decided to try a new recipe that I found on Pinterest. The original recipe came from HERE. The only thing I changed in the recipe was how I cooked it. Cooking things on high for only 3-4 hours in a crock pot really isn't an option for me, so I turned it on low at about 7:30ish a.m. I took the first bowl and ate out of it at about 3:30 and it stayed on till 5:00ish when everyone was done eating. I thought this tasted really good however I felt the kale seemed a little overcooked. The potato's and sausage seemed perfect, so if I were to make this again and it was an option, I'd probably throw the kale in about 1/2 way through instead of at the beginning. Either way, I'm sure I'll make this again! It's not quit as great as Olive Garden's soup (but maybe that's because I didn't have the yummy bread sticks to go with it), but it's definitely good enough to make again!
