I know, I know, it isn't really soup weather anymore. Unless you live in Idaho and then it is soup weather sporadically off and on until the end of June. You know it could be 70 one day and then snowing two days later.
We like variety around here. Well, we don't really like it but we don't really have a chance. So we are going to pretend that we like it.
The best thing about crazy weather ...
I don't have to pack away my sweaters.
I can have soup 9 months out of the year.
So yes, I made soup. The weather was just chilly enough that I hopped on that train and whipped up this soup. I had bookmarked several different recipes and did a little remix and I came up with this recipe. The end result was super dreamy and warmed me up perfectly on such a chilly day.
One of my little secret weapons in this recipe is the use of boxed wild rice.
The great thing about using a boxed wild rice is that there is a spice packet inside. That little add umph is so special. Special and fantastically yummy.
So if you have some uncharacteristically chilly days, make yourself some of this soup. If you want this soup and it is not chilly where you live, crank up the AC, pretend it is a chilly day, and make some soup. Oh and of course you need some of this crazy easy Dutch Oven Artisan Bread on the side.
Eat up and hey, thanks for stopping by another Slow Cooker Saturday.
