Game Day Eats: Fall is Here, Break Out the Slow Cooker

Fall has finally rolled into the the Mid-Atlantic area, and the temperatures are slowly dropping.  Finally it feels like football weather. That means it's the perfect time to break out the slow cooker, and make some down home feel good food. 

Today we are keeping it simple and cooking up some Sausage, Greens, and Beans.  Yup it's really that simple, don't believe us? Check out the recipe here.

We did make a few adjustments to the original recipe.  We're cooking with Dinosaur Kale.  Yeah crazy name and to be honest it looks a bit crazy as well. But Dinosaur Kale is perfect for meals like this because it's hardy and can hold up to the long cooking process. 

We're also using some Greed Chard as well.  Thanks our vegetable share we have an abundance of various greens and this meal makes use of a lot of them which is a good thing. 

Finally we went with an Andouille Sausage from the local butcher Meat on the Avenue.  These are naturally cased, and have a bit of  kick to them. 

Of course all of these is being served with a nice selection of Pumpkin and a few early season stout beers.
