Sausage Cassoulet

Snow! It snowed! I can’t believe it – winter is really here. Allegedly this is what I wanted when I moved back North after living in blissful sunshine in New Orleans for years (snow sighting: only once). But now, I’m not so sure as the snow is already turning to mushy slush. Blech! This is a perfect recipe for a snowy dreary day. It fills the house with good smells, is hearty and warming and doesn’t take forever to make.
