Rainy Day Tuscan Soup and a Rainy Day Playlist

Cloudy weekend days are the best for staying inside, listening to a rainy day playlist or watching a rainy day movie, and probably making this Tuscan soup....

This soup is one of my favorites ever! It's hearty and filling and perfect for rainy or wintry days. 

Soups are the best, because you really don't need a true recipe.

Simply cut your potatoes, peppers (Trader Joe's fireroasted peppers are a must, but you can roast your own if you don't have a TJs nearby), and onions. 

Brown spicy Italian chicken sausage and cook onions... 

And throw everything in a pot and simmer for about an hour (or until potatoes are cooked through)! 

If you want the full Italian soup experience, you could butter and toast some Italian bread. 

But hey, today we are having a southern Texas rainy day, and I suggest baking up some skillet cornbread on the side while your soup is simmering. 

If you're feeling really fancy, you could add a tablespoon or two of Italian seasoning to it as well. 

Serve and top with kale and maybe a sprinkle of parmesan cheese and ENJOY. Let me know if you give it a try!
