Soup’s On

SideI have to admit it. I love my slow cooker. It may seem silly, but I love having a warm, yummy, and nutritious meal cooking at home while I’m at work. =)

I LOVE this soup. I’ve posted a link on our adoption blog to it before, but not with my alterations and not with pics. The original recipe came from Here’s an update with the changes I made.
