Merstar, the soup sounds great!
In anticipation of today's *ahem* nor'easter (which turned out to be more of a No 'Easter) I cooked pork tenderloin on a bed of sauerkraut in the crockpot. Later, while rearranging my freezer to make room for new food, I found a package of bratwurst...so I tossed those into the pot when the tenderloin came out and cooked them till done. Made mashed potatoes to go-with. Ah, comfort foods!
