Crock pot chicken noodle soup is so good for the body and good for the soul. I love having a warm bowl of soup now that the weather has gotten a little colder. It seems like I want to make soup every day. For me that is fine, but for my son that doesn’t care for soup, not so much. Well maybe he deserves it. I made cookies today and what did he call them? (No rise cow pies!) Ya they won’t be going on the blog. Ha ha.
I guess the thing that I love the most about a crock pot and soup, you can forget about it, go about your day, come back in a few hours and there is the most wonderful dinner ever!! Oh ya I like to make a little fluffy cornbread to go with it. That is heaven on earth.
Well, I looked out the window and what did I see? I saw snow on top of the mountain! I hope that we get just a little bit more fall. It does get dark early and with daylight savings time coming, it will be getting dark at 5:00 pm! I am not ready for that. I can’t complain, I know that Alaska has it dark a lot longer than we do. What can I say, I just like light.
