Kielbasa Cabbage Stew
While we were out food shopping, I noticed the wind here will blow you away! This soup will stick to your ribs and warm you right up. I told hubby during a early dinner that the weather would be perfect for a outdoor fire in the firepit, but the wind is blowing too much. We love to stack wood in the pit and burn it, something soothing about the smell of wood smoke and the pop and crack of the wood as it burns.
On our way back home we stopped at the mailbox and YIPEE, my new doggie cookie cutter had arrived. It don't take much to make me smile! So you know what that means, yept, I will be posting some doggie treat recipes again REAL SOON so I can use my new cookie cutters!
Have a wonderful Saturday evening!
1/2 pound smoked turkey kielbasa or polish sausage, sliced
1 pound potatoes, peeled and cubed
