The chilly Fall days are here and my slow cooker has been working overtime lately. One of my family’s favorite slow cooker meals is a big pot of soup. I’ve made homemade chicken noodle soup before but this time I decided to make a batch of Slow Cooker Minestrone Soup. I love the way slow cooker meals fill my house with the scents of Fall.
