Lazy Saturday at our house today! Both my daughter and I slept until 9:30am and we've just been hanging out all day doing much of nothing. Perfect way to spend the weekend, right?



Today's recipe is a favorite from my childhood. I was visiting my sister in Mankato over Thanksgiving weekend and her husband made this for dinner one of the nights we were there visiting. I was in sauerkraut heaven! This stuff is so good, and such a hearty meal when served with some buttery mashed potatoes. So many of us grew up on this meal, or pork chops with sauerkraut here in central Minnesota. 

It's perfect for these cold winter days when you want to feel warm and full. It's so easy to throw in the slow cooker and before you know it, dinner is ready. Totally my kind of meal... simple and delicious! Enjoy!

  9. My husband has German heritage and he grew up eating sausage and sauerkraut. We've got a local German deli that has some really good, house made sauerkraut so now I'm inspired to give it a whirl. Thanks for the inspiration!
