It’s snowing at Herb’n Renewal!

But we don’t care because we have a kettle of soup cooking on the stove and that’s sure to warm us up!  And, I baked bread this morning so we have something to dunk!  Life just doesn’t get any better. 🙂

Cowboy Beans’n Sausage Soup

2 lbs. dried beans (we used pinto and white beans!)

3 qts. water

1 lb. smoked sausage, cubed small

1 medium onion, diced

1 cup green pepper, diced

2 ribs celery, diced

2 Tbsp. Herb’n Cowboy

1 tsp. each of beef and chicken bouillon

Soak beans overnight; drain and rinse. In a 6 qt. pot bring water and beans to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 1 hour. Stir occasionally. Brown sausage in a skillet for 5 minutes, then add next four ingredients and saute’ three minutes more. Once the beans have cooked an hour add mixture and bouillon to beans. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer (uncovered) for an additional hour or until beans are tender and soup has thickened…stir occasionally. Salt to taste.

Enjoy! 🙂
