Chicken and Dumplings.
When I think of comfort food that’s the first thing that pops up in my head.
It’s soul-warming, always delicious, perfect on a rainy day or a cold winter night and it’s definitely a crowd pleaser 🙂
I absolutely adore my crock pot and think it’s the best invention and try to use it at least once a week 🙂
And I love that I can make this soup in it!
You just chop some vegs then throw all the ingredients in the pot, 6 hrs later (and pretty much no work!) your soup is ready and it’s absolutely delish!
It doesn’t get any easier than this 🙂
And in case you’re wondering, my diet’s been going wayy better! I have been eating pretty healthy, with the occasional cupcake here and there 😉 and I even worked out!
I own the Brazilian Butt Lift program by Beach Body and I absolutely love it! It’s a ton of fun, pretty challenging but it really does work, I just need to use it more often to see results lol
I am completely bored with the gym and haven’t stepped foot in it in months so I’m always up for trying new workouts and ways to stay fit, so what’s your favorite workout? 🙂
Comments: hearty, easy soup and your family will love!
Will I make it again? Yes very tasty!
