Just a note to thank you for yet another wonderful meal. Your imagination is without boundaries and this particular soup or "stoup" as you call it may be your best one yet. Loaded with hot Italian sausage and veggies like onions, mushrooms, carrots and potato, the lentils are the perfect addition to this healthy bowl of bliss. Of course our new favorite, kale, added at the very end provides just the right amount of crunch and its bright green color and slightly bitter flavor really stand out. We loved the addition of smoked paprika too - in fact, we enjoyed the soup very much and know it's going to taste every bit as good, if not better, for lunch today.
I've said it before and I'll say it again - with your talent, warmth and charm you deserve every single bit of the success that's come your way.
I'm sending my readers directly to your web site for the recipe for your Hungarian Hot Sausage and Lentil Soup because, I changed nothing. It was perfect just as written. Also, I've got your "Big Orange Book" on my wish list, and if the Big Guy wants to add your newest "Book of 10" to the list, he's guaranteed to make a bunch of points. After all, it never hurts to accumulate points for the next time he screws up.
