Slow Cooker Alphabet Soup
A classic chicken and vegetable soup with a fun twist! This easy and flavorful slow cooker alphabet soup is perfect for the entire family!
I’m pretty much in disbelief that we’re well beyond the halfway point in October. How is Halloween next week? I’ll be honest though, in many ways I’m totally okay with that because what’s coming soon is way better than Halloween… Thanksgiving!!
Next to the 4th of July, Thanksgiving is probably one of my favorite holidays. I know we’re supposed to say it’s about sharing, togetherness, family, giving, etc but let’s be honest… it’s about yummy food and any holiday that revolves around food is totally okay in my book.
Pie. So. Much. Pie.
Ditch the turkey and make room for more pie. Okay, and stuffing. Because I love stuffing. Carbs and fruit. That’s not asking for too much is it?
Speaking of which, what team are you on… team pumpkin pie, apple or pecan?
Chicken soup is a classic cold weather comfort food. Not only is it perfect to warm you up, but it’s a favorite for when you’re not feeling so great. It’s one of those items that likely brings back childhood memories for so many. I remember my mom frequently making chicken or turkey soup in the cooler months. She’d throw in whatever she had on hand. It always amazed me that she knew just what to add to make it delicious and smell amazing.
Simple, warm, flavorful, family friendly and best of all…easy enough for any night of the week! Always a big plus!
I’m a huge fan of noodles in my chicken soup. So, I decided to put a fun kid friendly twist on a classic by adding alphabet pasta!
Be sure to add this easy slow cooker chicken and alphabet soup to your dinner plans!
