I have a fun announcement to share with you today!

I always think there is nothing better than a warm bowl of soup or stew for dinner on a chilly winter’s night.  I hope you guys feel the same, because this week is SOUP WEEK at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom!

I’ll be sharing my family’s favorite soup, stew and chili recipes all week long.  I’ll have a new recipe for you every day and the best part is I am giving away a Cast Iron Dutch Oven to a lucky winner at the end of the week!

I bought myself this Tramontina 6.5 Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven a couple of Christmases ago and use it like crazy for so many different recipes! (Not just for soup either- check out my latest pork tenderloin recipe.)

I know I’m not the only one who loves this pot because it has over 1000 reviews and 4.6 out of 5 stars. You’ll find the entry information at the bottom of the post.

Today’s soup recipe is super easy- it’s made using chicken broth, canned beans and precooked sausage. The flavors really come together in a delicious way and the soup always gets a thumbs up from the family.

You can use your favorite combination of beans.  The recipe call for three 14 oz cans, and today I used one can of black beans and two cans of cannellini beans.  I also ended up using two different sausages that I had on hand and needed to use up.  (One was a mild italian sausage and the other was a local brand {Elgin Sausage} that is now being sold in the grocery store.)
