Slow Cooker Pork Posole Soup

I went to a Mexican wedding last November and this soup was served as a starter, I don’t know why it left such a lasting impression (considering the amount of memory lapsing cocktails I ingested). Its probably because its hearty, healthy and comforting, with a dash of nostalgia.

I sussed out a few recipes on the interwebs and mashed them together to make this easy crock pot version:

Meatless Monday: Butternut Squash Soup

We’ve subscribed to Meatless Mondays! I was eating meatless on many nights of the week when I was single, but it when you live with a man, the need for meat at every meal seems almost mandatory. If I ever made anything vegetarian, I never seemed to fill him up enough and by 8pm he’d be ravaging our cupboards for a snack.

But not only is this butternut squash soup EASY, its made in the crock pot (did I say easy?), but its very hearty (or “meaty” as my boyfriend described it). I also made chunky homemade croutons to round it all off.

Smoky Corn Chowder

Last weekend while I was perusing the farm market, I grabbed 6 ears of fresh corn on the cob from the local farm behind the market. 3 for $1 so why not. In a few weeks, it’ll soon be 10 for $1, and then I go corny for corn.

I had this recipe on my pinterest board, so decided I’d try it. I made a few alterations, which I’ve marked below.
