Hi I'm new..(of course)

not really sure what to write on here..but i like cookin..it actually relaxes me when i'm stressed..that and reading. i'm in charlotte, nc.. i'm 32 and i think that all i need to say for now.

i'm on here because i have a craving for vegetable soup..however, i was wondering if anyone has ever tried it with smoked sausage before. i usually use ham pieces/scraps or chicken when i make soup. as it stands...i have no ham scraps and my chicken is frozen... so thats my next option..

any suggestions or thots?

Smoked sausage is excellent in vegetable soup. I would add it to the soup whole and slice it after the soup is done then add it back to the soup. That way, the sausage will not lose it's juices and become tough.
