life list: crock pot soup recipes

garam masala chicken stew

48. Find and try ten new crock pot soup recipes.

That item on my life list was pretty easy to check off, once I got down to it. The trouble is that soup isn’t very photogenic. But all of these I made, Saturdays or Sundays for football eatin’s, and they were all pretty good. Editor’s note: I started and finished this project in 2015 and never hit publish on this blog post. Whoops.

#1: Creamy Tortellini Soup, 9/20/15

Surprising amount of kick! Not as creamy as I’d wanted. Maybe extra evaporated milk.

#2: Ham and Corn Chowder, 9/26/15

Trav reports: “The best soup you’ve made.” I skipped the suggestion to microwave the last ingredients before adding and the cream cheese didn’t melt all the way and looked sort of weird. Tasted okay, though.

#3: Garam Masala Chicken Stew With Peas And Potatoes, 10/11/15

This is the definition of “hearty”.

#4: Mini Meatball Minestrone Soup, 10/24/15

ten soups: mini meatball minestrone

Use unsalted chicken broth, this was saltier than I expected.

#5: Tuscan White Bean and Sausage Soup, 11/1/2015

ten soups: italian sausage and white bean

Substituted sweet potato for the squash, and it was great.

#6: Loaded Baked Potato Soup, 11/14/15

Added carrots and corn for more vegetables. Probably peas would be okay too. This was awesome.

#7: Beef Stew with Coca-Cola, 11/22/2015

I forgot to take a picture of this one. It was a solid beef stew.

#8: Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup, 12/6/2015

#9: Tomato Basil Parmesan Bisque, 12/12/2015

Added pasta to this, might reduce the cheese a little at the end. But tasty.

Editor’s second note: I swear I made a 10th soup, but hell if I remember what it was. I’m checking this off the list because I’m tired of it hanging around in my drafts.
