Well, winter is officially here in Portland Oregon, it's currently 21 degrees in and we had a little bit of snow the other day!! I've been wearing multiple layers trying to stay warm! The days have been shorter which is why I haven't updated recently, by the time I get home from work it's dark and I can't take photos! I made this for Mario after he got off of work. It was perfect for a cold nice and we had left overs. 

I modified this recipe that I found on Real Simple: Bean and Chicken Sausage stew Because I couldn't find any chicken sausage. The next time I make this I want to add some rice to it to make it go even further!
