I was on such a roll reading over the summer. Literally book after book. I’d finish one and immediately pick up another to start. For whatever reason, even though I have the mornings completely to myself now, I haven’t found myself reading to the same degree. I feel like I need to dedicate a day or certain hour or two of the day to just sit down and read. Do you ever do that… schedule a time to read or do anything else in particular, just to set aside “me (you)” time?

Another ‘over the summer’ tale… we have wetlands on our property but by July, every year, they dry up. This causes the frogs to venture into the pool. We would eject them daily… scooping them up and transferring them elsewhere. Of course, they always returned, but it gave us a frog free pool to swim in. Now, a massive softball sized bullfrog has taken up residency. I mean, this thing is seriously enormous. It’s probably the largest frog I’ve ever seen. Good thing swimming season is long gone, it’s going to be a nightmare to get that one out of the pool!

This soup is ridiculously good. I’m not exaggerating in the slightest! I had high hopes for this soup and it met all of my expectations.

Enjoy the flavors of nachos in an easy and comforting soup! It tastes just like you’re eating nachos, but in soup form! So insanely good. I can’t get enough of it and neither can one of my kids. She’s obsessed. When it’s gone, I’m positive she’ll be asking me to make another batch.

Easy cheesy slow cooker nacho soup, packed full of beef and veggies. A perfect weeknight meal!

    Oh goshie, a bullfrog, no no, cannot cope with that – I’d probably avoid the swimming pool and just leave it in the frogs control rather than try to get him moved on!!

    Total scaredy-cat!

    I like to set aside an hour before I go to bed to read or watch a tv show my husband has no interest in. Since he stays up way later than me, it’s the perfect time and let’s me unwind. I love this soup Rachel! It’s perfect for any chilly night or to make on Sundays to have during all the football games.

    • Rachel — September 8th, 2016 @ 7:23 am

      Thanks so much, Danae! I definitely need to start reading at night when there isn’t anything good on!

    Ha! I can’t believe you have a giant bullfrog in the pool! Doesn’t the chlorine bother them?? That’s so funny. Soup looks amazing! Can’t wait for soup weather! :)

    • Rachel — September 8th, 2016 @ 7:24 am

      It doesn’t seem to bother any of them – large or small. Very strange! And thank you!

    OMG I’d die if there was a frog in the pool. I’m such a wimp!
    I have these bowls (random) and love them! AND I am so in love with how this recipe sounds. Taco night just might have to step aside next week!

    Could you use plain Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream?

    • Rachel — September 13th, 2016 @ 7:04 am

      I personally wouldn’t recommend it as you could have issues with the yogurt separating. For the best results, stick with heavy cream.

    Would it make a difference if i left out the heavy cream and the flour🤔..???

    • Rachel — September 21st, 2016 @ 7:23 am

      It wouldn’t be as thick and creamy, but if you need to leave it out for dietary restrictions then it’s worth trying!
