It’s great to come home to a warm bowl of low carb crock pot cheeseburger soup. Just prep the ingredients in the slow cooker before leaving.
The weather has finally started to get nice, but it’s still not warm enough to go without a jacket. There have been a few days where I was comfortable in just a T-shirt outside. But, I always keep a jacket with me because New England weather is so unpredictable.
Last Saturday was was sunny and warm. It was a great day to be outside. So, I prepped up a batch of low carb crock pot cheeseburger soup in the morning and put it in the slow cooker just before heading out.
I decided to take my youngest daughter to a park we haven’t been to in a few years. Even though it was mid-morning, there weren’t any other kids at the playground. We ended up taking a walk and started seeing a few other kids come in.
The park has a large pond and there were some kids fishing. My daughter loves to fish in our own pond, so I wish I had taken the fishing gear with us. I didn’t see a lot of fish being caught, though.
We ended up stopping to get lunch. I only had a salad because I knew I had my crock pot cheeseburger soup cooking in the slow cooker at home.
When I got back home, I was greeted by the smell of crock pot cheeseburger soup. Since I had already had lunch, I waited a few hours before digging it.
Some people may see soup as a comfort food that’s just for cooler weather. But, we love to enjoy soup year round. Seafood chowders are especially popular in New England during the summer months.
My daughter usually takes a nap in the early afternoon, but she wasn’t ready for it yet. So, we hung out outside and she played in the yard for about an hour.
After my daughter came in and finally fell asleep, I got to relax with a cup of the crockpot cheeseburger soup. It was just as delicious as it smelled!
My son came in just as I had put the soup away and asked him if he wanted a taste. He gave it a try and really liked it. In fact, he ended up eating half of it over the next few days.
Later in the day, I heated up a bowl of the soup for dinner. I let my three year old daughter try it since she loves to eat from my plate. She loved the soup too and she is super picky when it comes to food.
The crock pot cheeseburger soup ended up being a winner with my family. So, I’ll certainly be making this recipe again.
It could be made on the stovetop if you don’t have the time for slow cooking. But, I really like letting the Crock Pot do the cooking while I go out and do other things.
Using the Crock Pot a great way to get dinner ready early so you can come home and relax with a comforting meal. I do need to get better at doing meal prep the night before and setting up the crock pot before leaving for work. I’m just always too rushed in the morning to do much.
Do you prefer cooking soups on the stove or in the slow cooker?
