This makes a good and hearty soup and just perfect for cold weather.

My cup and soup bowl  is marked
 Molde - Portugal and came from TJMAXX
I have six mugs and a long narrow plate
which is good for serving french bread.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the soup.

This sounds really good, Clara. I've never used sausage in soup. I'll have to give it a try. I'm so thankful we finally have some cool weather in FL this week:)

Your soup looks great, Clara. We had soup for dinner tonight - sweet potato tomatillo. It was good. Soup warms us on chilly autumn days!
