Hearty creamy bowl of comfort! Slow cooker + simple ingredients = effortless dinner with minimal hands-on time!
So were you affected by the snow storm this past weekend? I was kind of jealous seeing all the snow on TV and social media, cuz we were having unusually nice weather with sunshine and melting snow. It’s pretty darn weird for North Dakota, you know.
Snow or no snow, no difference to me though, I’m already hibernating with my little munchkin anyway! (Have you seen my snapchats lately? It’s all about baby snuggles! In case you didn’t know, my snapchat username: shineshka)
I could use an excuse to make a hearty soup. Actually, scratch that. I don’t need an excuse to make a hearty soup, especially when it comes to this creamy, rich ham, corn and potato soup! It’s like ham and potato soup meets corn chowder! So GOOD!!!
With so little hands-on time to dice up the veggies and ham, this soup couldn’t be easier! Just throw all the ingredients into the slow cooker and forget about it till dinner time!
Simple ingredients, minimal effort, big flavors! See, it’s a total WIN-WIN all around!
So rich and creamy with only 1/2 cup of heavy cream!
You guys, I want this soup all day every day all winter long! Ok, maybe with some knoephla soup in between. By the way, how do you like my winter soup recipes? I hope you’re enjoying them as much as I do.
Now tell me what’s your favorite winter comfort food?
