Finally Cooking.

 I finally got a chance to cook something wonderful last night. I made a cheesy potato and smoked sausage stew which was fabulous. I picked up some wonderful bread bowls from the store and they were frozen so they were so easy to fix. Just thaw and stick them in the oven for only 9-11 minutes. Charlie loved it and I was so glad. Cooking for the two of us I have to really think because both of us are pretty picky. Charlie asked for me to make again sometime soon and he even brought some leftovers to work with him. We could have split one of the bowls it was so big. Comfort food at the max.

I love to have the table set nice and my fall apple scented candle from bath and body works helped set a lovely atmosphere. As you can see the bread bowls are HUGE! They took up almost the whole dinner plates. 

The stew is so simple to fix.

Cheesy Smoked Sausage and Potato Stew

  • 1 package of smoked sausage.(I cut into slices and cut the slices into 4 parts)
  • 32 ounces Chicken Broth
  • 4-5 Yukon Gold Potatoes, cubed
  • 1 whole chopped onion (optional)
  • 1/2 cup cream or milk (I used cream)
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (I used more because I love pepper)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
I also put in some crushed red pepper just for a little kick. Charlie requested it, the boy likes his food spicy. 

Cook stock potatoes onion, and sausage until potatoes are cooked
Add cream and cheese as well as spices and let simmer until thickened.
