Kip's Soup du Jour Went out to ,Hasting's Landing today to check out the Soup du Jour. Someone had told me they thought it was going to be his Stoganoff Soup, but turned out to be his Turkey Dressing soup. Yup, just like it sounds. Thanksgiving in a bowl. Most delicious. A thick and hardy soup with generous chunks of Turkey and just the right amount of dressing, It becomes part of the mix and it truly hits the spot. Kelly's Sausage of the Week Kelly left about an hour ago. He had planned on making sausage later in the day, but whimped out. He headed out the back door leaving me with letters to the Great Pumpkin, saying, "I'm not going to do sausage tonight. I'll do it tomorrow." Lucky I got loaded up good at Kips earlier, or I might not have survived without the sausage. By the way did I tell you that when l finished the soup I began to understand why they call it an appetizer. I suddenly was famished, so I had one of his 90 pound burgers and a field of fries. So stuffed when I left, I could barely keep my eyes open. So, the fact that Kelly didn't make sausage tonight wasn't as traumatic as it might have been. Tomorrow, he's going to focus on his famed Potato Sausage. I believe he said he was going to make some snack sticks too. I still haven't had a chance to do bits of it on a baked potato, but when I do it will be Polish with Cheddar, bits, and a gallon of sour cream.
