Who says dinner needs to be complicated? All I want is some good comfort food that I can feel good about eating. Soups, stews and chili’s are just always some of my fall favorites.
So this Slow Cooker Potato soup is one you will often find on my menu. Ahhh, I get all warm and cozy just thinking about it. You know the feeling you get when you’re finally settled in for the night.
All comfy cozy in your favorite PJ’s…Now all you need is a big bowl of Potato Soup.
Now that you’ve set up the perfect evening, Well almost!! Make sure to include whatever else relaxes you the most…listening to music…reading a book or curled up by a fire.
While my fall evenings usually involve a little outdoor time which may include a fire or snuggling up to the outdoor patio heater with a glass of wine.
