Meatless Monday: Slow Cooker Cheesy Potato Soup Recipe

Courtesy of Betty Crocker
September starts soup time in our house. This year, I decided that I would make a big batch of soup on Sunday to enjoy as lunch throughout the week as well as part of dinner on during the week. I call it Souper Sunday!

My first soup, I made meatless, mainly because I still can't stand the smell of bacon. It was super easy ... throw everything in a crock pot and leave it! And even though the directions didn't call for it, at the end I pureed half of it. We enjoyed this on Monday as dinner with a nice piece of crusty bread.
