High School Reunion and Easy Tuscan Soup

Weekend Recap


My ten year high school reunion was the Saturday after Thanksgiving. I can’t believe it’s been ten years, I feel so old! I was a little nervous about going because I didn’t know who would be there or what to expect. I did have friends going which made me feel more comfortable. Once I got there I didn’t know why I was so worried everyone is still just as awesome as they were in high school. Although there weren’t a lot of people I feel as though it was the perfect amount to walk around and talk to everyone without feeling overwhelmed. It was great to hear what everyone was up to now and how their lives have changed.  I had a great high school experience and I feel part of the reason was the people in our graduating class, we had a great group.

At the reunion there was a photo booth set up and we certainly had a lot of fun doing it.


Sunday was a day of relaxation and recovery from Saturday. I did some cleaning with my new found tips and tricks which I will share on a later post so stay tuned. We watched some Christmas Movies and snuggled with our Lucy.

I was craving a hearty soup but didn’t feel like going crazy trying to make one so I found a great recipe that was super easy to make and was so delicious! I started with putting onion and minced garlic in the pool to simmer for a little bit. I then started cooking the sausage in a separate pan.

While that was cooking I added the rest of the ingredients to the pot to cook for 20 to 25 minutes. After 25 minutes I added the cooked sausage and cream to the soup and let cook for another 5 minutes. Voila! Easy and not out of a can!


1 lb of sausage

1 large Onion

3 cloves of minced garlic
