Easy Crockpot Meatball Soup

As I type, I am simultaneously watching the Bates Hotel tv series. I may abruptly start writing about taxidermy and mental illness, so do not be alarmed. On a much more stable note, we had a fun day! We saw the new Peanuts movie, spent quality time together as a family and...uh, Dan and I just DEVOURED the pumpkin pie bars that I will be posting about soon. They are TO DIE FOR.

This soup is a keeper, as well. I made it last weekend and we munched on it for the next few days. It was GOOD. It is one of those recipes that just never gets old, even when you eat it day after day.

One of the things I love about this soup is that there is NO PREP involved. It is easy peasy!

Let your crockpot do the work and you will look like a genius. :)

I happened to have leftover ham in my fridge, so I cut that up and threw it in, as well.

Enjoy! Have a GREAT rest of your weekend!
