Add bacon to a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until brown. Drain the bacon and remove all but 1 teaspoon of rendered bacon fat. Add the olive oil and the onion. Cook the onion for 3-5 minutes or until softened and translucent. Add the garlic and cook 1-2 minutes more or just until the garlic is slightly softened and fragrant. Add about a cup of chicken stock and use the edge of a wooden spoon to deglaze the bottom of the pan. Add the remaining stock, beans, turkey, kale, bay leaves, thyme, salt, and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, stirring occasionally, and then reduce heat to medium-low. Continue cooking the soup at a simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the bay leaves and serve warm with a sprinkling of the crisp bacon bits.
The newly renovated home ultimately met all the criteria of homeowners Bill and Jody, including a wonderful and welcoming front porch that's large enough to accommodate a dining table and swinging porch bed.
Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
Natural elements are a big feature of the Lindsey home, from wood cabinets and shelves in this stunning bathroom, to spectacular views of the woods beyond. Small round his-and-her mirrors are a clever way to get around the windows in place of mirrors dilemma here. The master bathroom also features a sauna, whose door can be seen on the left.
