Once temperatures begin dipping or simultaneously blend between overcast skies with rain I’m always content to stir up a nice pot of soup for mealtime.

Of course, around my house we eat all sorts of homemade soup year round. Given my weekly preparation of stock, most any soup choice then provides a nourishing, tasty and economical option. Like his mother, my grandson, the J-Dude really loves soup and between them both they may likely even prefer any variety of fresh soups at least a few times a week, possibly more.

Dried bean soups take a little planning though since its best to soak the beans in a pot of water overnight. On the other hand, if you’ve a couple of cans of beans in your larder then by all means why not make the best of what you already have?

6 hot Italian sausages with colander of cooked cannellini beans and head of savoy cabbage

This week the spicy reddish colored Italian sausage appeared so ‘just made’ appetizing in the grocers case and the savoy cabbage head looked so fresh and bright in its hued shades of green, well, not to wax poetic or anything, but the combination was like the quintessential example on choosing and preparing what’s best from the market.

Here I am talking about soups a mere week away from Thanksgiving when most everyone else has sides and desserts in the forefront of their minds, maybe you do too. Still, before then this leaves some dinner spots needing meals even if there is some take-out or otherwise in the preparation rush. But when you are eating in, once you’ve got some cooked white beans, this hearty Spicy Sausage and White Bean Soup, Savoy Cabbage is a real breeze to put together, even short days just before that special Thanksgiving holiday meal piled high with sides and desserts.
