Creamy Potato Crockpot Soup

I’m so happy to be posting over here with Vanessa! Especially on such a ambitious topic as the dreaded dinner meal! It’s really not enough for dinner to just be yummy and inexpensive… It’s got to be easy, versatile, and packed full of vegetables right?


Well, at least this recipe is simple.

Whether you are a working parent or a stay at home parent, this recipe is easy to prepare and will leave your day wide open. This soup is also something you can throw together to utilize leftovers; chicken dinner; potatoes starting to develop spuds; fresh frozen corn you shucked and froze over the summer; milk nearing it’s expiration date…
