We just had our first snow of the season!!

There’s just something magical, or rather mesmerizing, about watching white snow fall from the sky.

Nothing beats snuggling up with a cozy bowl of deliciously soul-soothing soup, right by the fireplace covered up in my favorite blankie, enjoying the creation of a beautiful wintery painting unfolds before my eyes. 🙂

I’m surprised you do not pour off the fat from the sausage and then add the onions. I find the flavor is just as good, but less fat for your body and your heart- if you drain off the fat. What do you think?4 stars
