A hearty soup that’s not too heavy, this Creamy Paleo Instant Pot Sausage and Potato Soup is the perfect amount of savory and spice.
There’s still a little frost on the ground but I’ll be darned if Spring is not peeking its little sunny head out. Thanks golly Winter is almost over, I thought I might not make it. In the meantime, we’ll keep souping it up over here.
In 8 short weeks my crew is packing up (yes again and yes we did just basically move here) and heading town to Florida for a year or two. Of all the places the military could send us, I’m not real mad about Florida. I mean, 30 minutes from the beach and swim weather year round? SIGN. ME. UP.
The less great part is the fact that we have to schlep our family to yet another new city, new set of schools, new doctors, new residence. But I’m hopeful this next assignment will be personally rewarding and spiritually fulfilling, because like I said…. BEACH. Ocean. Sand. Salty air.
Plus let’s be honest, as long as I have my family, my Instant Pot, coffee, and snacks, I reckon we’ll be just fine.Print
