Anyway I decided to pan fry the sausage in a bit of olive oil.
Dinner was great. I would've been much nicer without having another 'do your homework' discussion with our son though. Ah 10, how I don't miss having 'mean' parents!
If you are ever have a chance to go to Pike Place Market in Seattle he has a storefront and gives out tons of samples! You can also see the bar used in Sleepless in Seattle which is next door, AND see a show with flying fish from Pike Place Fish! You can't have to much fun at Pike Place.
So today I decided to bring in my leftovers and make a little bit of soup in my trusty crock pot. I decided to bring this baby in from home since we are here more than there and we haven't been getting our fair share of soup since we weren't home to make it. Whew! Ok enough explaining about my love of crockery!
The recipe was simple:
I began by draining a tetra quart of organic chicken broth into the crock pot and putting in on high with the lid on.
I chopped up the leftover sausage into bits, I got about a cup of loosely packed bits.
I put this into the crock pot, I think I'll just start calling him Fred.
Then I chopped up about four carrots, half a leek and 2 stalks of celery.
I nuked the carrots for 5 minutes, until soft.
Then I did the celery and leeks together for four minutes.
By this point we were all starving so we had some before the soup mix had a chance to boil & thicken but is was still fantastic! Just what I was looking for the flavor of roasted lamb and carrots. The only thing that would have made it better would've been parsnips.
