Chicken Nacho Soup {Crockpot}

A lot of people have asked me recently why I haven’t been blogging as much, or why I didn’t blog this summer.

Crockpot Pot Roast with Mashed Potatoes

It is a gloomy, rainy Sunday here in Minnesota. There is something just so comforting about Crockpot meals on rainy days. Put the food in the pot, then sit back and relax with some TV while the crockpot does all the work! That’s my kind of meal prep day!
