Gotta love a recipe that starts with bacon!




Bacon chopped up.


Love the chopper thingy it works great.


Browning up the Italian sausage.


Taters, bacon, onions and fresh garlic ready for the party.


Fresh garlic.


Using my homemade chicken stock with this soup!


Great aroma in the house!


Man it was good! Also made some homemade bruschetta and a garden salad. Had some neighbors over to use as guinea pigs. They liked it too!


Made this for my Honey hanging in the kitchen. Use it for grocery lists, notes, and whatever. She saw a picture and asked if i could build her one.
Ended the evening with our friends by the fire.

Dan that looks awful good. I saw the first picture with the bacon before I read any of your commentary and thought to myself "This is going to be good". Very Happy It is getting to be that time of year for soups and stews. Might have to give this one a try. Nice work!

Jarhead John is well. He is still out in Cali hanging out with the family. He hasn't said when he's heading back to MO, but I did get a "Its close to beer thirty" text the other day, so Id say he will be around soon Laughing
