A Week of Warming Soups for the Slow Cooker

Imagine a week like this: every morning, you spend ten minutes (and I'm not exaggerating on that!) filling your slow cooker. Every evening, you make a salad and warm up some bread & have dinner with no work - and no stress! It can be done!

Or, every day, you fill your slow cooker while you're cooking something else. A few hours later, you pour the contents of the slow cooker into a freezer container, and freeze it. That way, in one week, with no extra time in the kitchen, you could have a freezer full of ready meals.

Soups are wonderful in the Fall & Winter - they're hearty, healthy warming, and less rich and heavy than other seasonal fare.

Give a few of these great soups a try for relaxing, warming dinners this week. No stress, no hassle, no need to stop for fast food : )

Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
