Who has time for anything these days?

Yesterday was one of those days – and it seems like lately just about every day is a "rush" day.

After taking the babies to school I ran to the market to get milk. I wanted soup but I would have to make a soup that can be done in a hurry. No time for all the straining and skimming, etc.

So while I was at the market I grabbed a package of polish kielbasa. Easy and fast soup.

I had so much to do and no time for anything – so I ran in the door after going to the market, hung up my coat and put my keys and purse away. Put away the milk, washed my hands and grabbed a large soup pot, filled with cold water and placed over medium heat on the stove. Immediately dropped in 6 chicken bouillon cubes. Grabbed an onion out of the fridge – I had about 3/4 of a medium sweet onion from making salad the day before,pulled the carrots and the celery out of the drawer, washed a couple stalks of celery and 3 large carrots; cleaned the carrots and sliced; sliced the celery adding a healthy dose of fresh celery leaves – minced and diced the onion. Not much Kosher salt is needed because of the bouillon cubes.

Sliced a half of the 3-pound package of sausage and added to pot with parsley and cracked black pepper.

Bring to simmer over medium heat – very little skimming with this – and when the sausage was cooked through, added egg noodles and chopped green cabbage. Cook until noodles and cabbage are tender.

My actual prep time was less than 10 minutes!

Served with Italian bread for soppin'.
