Two slow cooker soups you will enjoy. I made these on Friday and Saturday. They were delicious and I have enough left over for a few more lunches bottled them in canning jars and they sealed didn’t have to process 😀 ~ Enjoy!

I’m trying to put a cookbook together of just slow cooker meals; they are the best as you can put the ingredients in and leave to cook while you go about doing other things.
