Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

chicken noodle soupIn my previous post I shared I was spending some time looking for some recipes. One I was looking for was a good Chicken Noodle Soup. With the cooler temps headed our way, a good soup is not only filling, but warms the body up as well. This recipe looks really good and I can not wait to try it. I do need to get some ingredients and make some more noodles before I throw it all in the crock pot… but I plan on getting this cooking soon. I found the recipe on Food.com
