Italian Sausage Soup with Cabbage

You ever buy food just because its on sale? {of course you do!} We all do because we all like saving money or getting something at a discount.

Yesterday Harris Teeter had their Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage links on sale! Buy One get One Free.

I tell you, I tend to go nuts when I see that… Buy 1 Get 1.. FREE?! This is why Harris Teeter is so dangerous to me. They not only have wonderful BOGO sales, but sometimes…they even have buy TWO get THREE FREE deals and then its all over and I’ve got a freezer packed full of ice cream. {this is why I workout… BECAUSE of Harris Teeter Ice Cream deals.}

Well anyway, so I picked up the sausage, not really knowing what I was going to make with it, but its SAUSAGE and I could do just about anything with it…chili or spaghetti or hoagies.. but I settled on soup.

This is what I call one of my {kitchen sink} soups. I don’t always follow a recipe, I just look at what I have and start throwing stuff together.. for this one I had Kris pick up a few things from the store, but most I had handy. The great thing with this kind of broth based soup is its so easy to swap out different vegetables or meat.

Try Kale, Bok Choy or Spinach instead of Cabbage. Green beans, peas or zucchini instead of carrots and potatoes.. Or ground beef, turkey sausage, ground chicken instead of Italian sausage. Really, you can go places with this soup.

The one thing that stays true… is that its fabulous.
