Vegetable Soup

I made a huge batch of vegetable soup on Sunday in our crock pot. Several months ago I made a goal of trying to make a big batch of soup once a week. Other than this week...I think I only did this once. Sigh.

I was happy to use the chicken stock that I froze after Eric and I roasted a chicken. Something feels so right when you aren't wasting anything (we had a couple of old-ish tomatoes too that I wouldn't eat, but made it in the soup too!). I crammed as many fresh vegetables that could possibly fit in one large crock pot, and I added some chopped fresh jalapenos for a little heat.

This week is incredibly busy. I'm giving an exam in all of my classes this week, I desperately need to get my grades set up, and I need to finish writing final exams...but the end of the semester is so close...I'm happier than a student counting down.

P.S. The boyfriend loves this soup too......WIN! (His brussell sprouts and carrots usually end up on my plate.)

I agree with your boy friend, brussel sprout and carrots need to be on plate.
