Springtime Veggie Soup

You all know how much I love my crockpot, right? I use it all year long...not just in the cold, cold winter. It works great for lighter, quick springtime meals too. Case in point...this delicious veggie soup. I found the recipe on Pinterest, tweaked it a bit, and it was perfect for our Sunday evening supper. Enjoy!

  1. Good Morning Billie Jo,

    This soup, photo and ingredients, looks so delicious. I am a pasta lover! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    :) Hope

  2. You know what..my husband just said to me that today would be a good day for homemade soup and bread. Thanks for sharing. Blessings

  3. Sounds delicious! I am like you and love the crock pot and use it throughout the year. It sure makes life easier :)

    Hugs to you, my friend!

  4. I love a good veggie soup!! Sounds delicious :)

  5. Hi Billie Jo! I was just telling my husband that I think soup for dinner sound really good. And here is your recipe. I think I'll replace the asparagus with green beans though. (Not much of an asparagus fan) It's in the 50's with rain, and we even got pea to marble sized hail! What a day.

    Soup and crusty bread it is! Thank you my friend :)

  6. Sounds wonderful! I have everything in my pantry to make this. I will have to hold off until this weekend because it is going to be in the 90s for the next three days!


Thanks so much for saying hello!

Billie Jo
