Crockpot Garlic Potato Soup ~ Soup has always been one of those things that I eat alone or only with other adults. Well, that has all finally changed because of this soup and a little friendly peer pressure. Good friends of my boys L-O-V-E soup and eat it a lot. So much in fact, that they often times pack it up to take to school for lunch. This idea grabbed the attention of my boys and while out one evening they opted for trying the soup being served. As I watched with big eyes (and fingers-crossed), their faces lit-up with delight and smiles as they had a Green Eggs and Ham moment of “Say, I do like this!” Really? YAY! Thus, a new chapter in eating has begun and the soups are flying to the table. This soup is a fairly easy one to make in a crockpot and we topped it with bacon and sour cream and well … anything topped with bacon and sour cream, need I say more? It was quickly slurped up and followed by an enthusiastic “more, please!”
