Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale

It seems like ages since I made this soup. Probably because it has been. With the chill in the air coming on strong here in New England, I've been craving hearty dishes, like soups and chilis. I made a glorious chili for a tailgate we recently attended, and really wanted to tackle a soup that is equally as hearty as a chili, but that is completely different. This one definitely does the trick. It's super savory and using spicy sausage provides quite the depth of flavor when added to the lentils. Now, I've only ever made lentil soup once before, but it was a lifetime ago and my roommate and I had little weekly cooking adventures during a season where I was squatting with a few friends {but that's a story for another time and place} ~ either way, lentils are essentially a foreign  ingredient to me.
No biggie, they were actually very easy to work with. Another potential road block was that I was making this for both tt and I for the entire week, so I doubled the recipe..…
