Crockpot Creamy Butternut Squash Soup with Sausage Crumbles

When it comes to Butternut Squash Soup, I want simple, creamy and thick. Maybe too thick for some peoples tastes (but I’ll tell you how much broth to add if you want a thinner soup…) but it sticks to your ribs and is a party for your taste buds.

Our New Years Eve Chinese Food Feast!

On New Years Eve my cousin and his family came over to spend the evening and night. They have 2 children under 4, and we have a 2 1/2 yr old. So nobody gets out to a party. Especially since our mothers love to go out to friends places on New Years, thus ridding us of babysitters. Gee, Thanks Mom.   Hi Mom! Hi Auntie Kath!

They came over, I made a spectacular dinner, and then they put their children to bed upstairs, we all had … Continue reading Our New Years Eve Chinese Food Feast!
