Oh how I love you, Monday. Ha, not really. But they come around each week so you have to learn to deal with them and accept them. Am I right? Well, I can’t say that I totally hate Mondays. I get quite a few of them off during the year. The company I work for is closed on all holidays, both major and minor. So I can’t complain, right? Plus, today just marks one day closer that we start our vacation in North Carolina. Oh how I hope it snows there! I’m a true Florida gal who has never seen snow. I know, it’s pretty shocking to be in your 30s and to have never seen snow, right?
Crock Pot Thai Chicken Soup
So about this soup. I kind of made it on a whim one day. I was going to make my Crock Pot Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup but then I was like “let’s do something different!” So I did. Coconut milk, mushrooms, peanut butter, leeks, limes, some other select seasonings and of course, chicken, are all that’s needed to make this hearty soup. No joke, this is just something I threw together using ingredients I had on hand. I didn’t have to run to the store to get any ingredients to make this soup. I love recipes like this!
Ken really enjoyed this soup. Me, I had a love/hate relationship with it. At first taste, I loved it. Then a few minutes later I wasn’t so sure. But the next day, it was great. Maybe my taste buds needed the flavors to have time to rest together before they could handle it. In any case, this is one hearty, enjoyable soup that won’t keep you tied to the kitchen. Enjoy!
