Toulouse Style Sausage and Beans


Whew, It's been a while I haven't been babbling about my kitchen and my life! The truth is my digital camera is pretty much clogged up already with all the recipes I wanted to upload here, but unfortunately my time is kinda tight. There is definitely a lot of things that's been going on here lately. And well to cut to the chase, were moving.

And this isn't just a ten or twenty kilometers moving but a big cross-country adventure. It's been months that we've been cooking this up and mind my words this isn't really easy. Counting all the stuffs we have to keep and give up plus all the paperworks I'll sum them up in one word, "exasperating"!

Like this one afternoon that we needed to do my daughter's ID photo, I don't know how do professional photographers succeed in making them behave in front of the camera because mine doesnt..well if you don't believe me, see it for yourself :-)

all the pose but the right one....

I'm sending off a big helping of this delicious Sausage and Beans to SRA of When my soup came alive this month's hostess of that fabulous monthly My Legume Love Affair an event created by the talented Susan of Well Seasoned Cook.

I can relate very well to that..My daughter decides to get hyperactive when she knows she's getting photographed.

Sausage and beans..make a great dish.

Marysol said...

You know, you need a mouthwatering name that matches the look of that delectable dish.

In regards to you little cutie's ID photographs, I'd have a very difficult time deciding which ones to eliminate.

Best of luck with your next moving adventure.

Quite a few of the ingredients are new to me, tho' not the beans and sausages. I think this is the first time I've heard of laurel in cooking. Thanks for the entry!

Sue said...

I don't envy you the move, until it's completely over with and done, but that little poppet is the cutest ever! I LOVE the squirmy, funny, can't-sit-still pictures, because that's exactly what they're like!

Great recipe too!

daphne said...

Oh yum! What a delicious comfort food. I can certainly see myself dipping into it with crusty bread!

I love the series of photos too- sounds how wide range of emotions kids learn so quickly!

Karine said...

You daughter is indeed really cute!

I love your dish. It looks yummy :)

Toni said...

I'm afraid I'd have to disagree with you - I think her pictures are perfect. She is beyond adorable, and is acting perfectly like a child.

And the sausage and beans look fabulous! I had a dish similar to this in southern France a number of years ago and it still stays in my memory.
