2) Food Inspiration

My husband loves Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana Soup so I set out to find a copycat recipe to make for him at home.

I have found two and I made one of them this past week.  I made a few changes from the original, but it turned out delicious and I will be making it again.  I also want to try the #2 recipe soon and compare them.

Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana Soup #1


5 1/2 c water
5 chicken bouillon cubes
1 pint heavy cream
5 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
1 bunch chopped kale 
1 lb mild Italian sausage
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes


1.  Cook sausage; add a little water, cover and cook over medium-
low heat. Brown on each side, adding a little water to pan as
needed. Cook to 180 degrees, or no longer pink inside. 

2.  Peel and dice potatoes. Rinse and chop kale into bite-sized 
pieces; removing and discarding ends. Finely dice onions.

3.  Once sausage is cooked, remove from pan and add onions. Cook 
for several minutes and then add water and broth powder. 

4.  Add whipping cream and potatoes. Cut sausage in half 
lengthwise, then chop into bite-sized pieces. Add to pot. Add kale. 

5.  Cook for a few minutes. Add red pepper flakes. Simmer until 
potatoes and kale are tender.

5) Life Inspiration

This is exactly how I'm feeling these days. 

I want to block out the distractions.  Ignore the negative.  

Fall away from things of this world.  Silence the chatter. 

I only want to hear God.
