first serious/fun cooking of the new year

i have been sick since the (beginning) of the new year. i started to feel bad just before new years eve. needless to say, i haven't really been cooking. i've been making stuff, but not playing or trying to use a recipe.

tonight, i needed some inspiration for dinner. i paged through a cookbook and found something that sounded tasty.

i think it looks very much like some kind of peasant meal. it's a delicious combination of turkey hot italian sausage, garlic, onion, kale, chicken broth, and chickpeas. it's a little brothy, and packed full of flavor w/o added salt or pepper.

i'm always hesitant about cooking certain greens, but the kale wilted beautifully. it was a fun recipe to try out, and now i have leftovers for a few more meals.
