Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup

So we’re now on day 3 of the school semester and I already want to sleep for 17 hours and burn every textbook in the house. I’ve taken 3 quizzes, read more pages than I care to say from the most incredibly dull political science book known to mankind, and written a painfully boring persuasive paper.

I won’t bore you with details but I’ll just say that it revolved around the ObamaCare controversy – let’s not open that can of worms!

Honestly this here blog is my sanctuary at the moment. When I was adding citations to my poli-sci paper I wished the entire time I could forget about all things APA and MLA for two minutes and instead discuss super-mega-creamy chicken and wild rice soup things with you instead.

Oh what I wouldn’t give to never go through the agony of in-text citations again for as long as I live. Fairly certain I’d give a toe people. A real toe.

It’s okay, I’ve got 9 spares.

Now let’s indulge in some creamy perfection. Do you see that^^^^?? That’s what a creamy soup should look like. I’ve gotten into this habit lately of adding cream cheese to, well, basically everything.

Side bar: the other day I told my husband I put cream cheese in our chicken enchilada soup and he gave me the nastiest look in the world. Turns out when I said “cream cheese” it registered as “cottage cheese” in his mind.

Yeahhh not so much hon.

But cream cheese? Yes PUH-LEASE.

Ughhhhh….so glad those days are behind me! Sometimes I miss college, but then when I hear “quiz” and “paper,” I take it back. I can see how this space is your therapy!! How can that soup NOT make you feel better?!

    I think I will miss the learning aspect but then I know I will remember my 12 page papers and think, ummmm yeah I think I’ll just read a good book instead. 😉

School. I was so glad when I graduated from college. Done with the constant stress of “I should be studying instead of ____________.”
Of course many years later and here I am homeschooling my boys. I’m a glutton for punishment 🙂
But a warm bowl of soup fixes many things, especially if it is as easy as this one looks.
Thanx!

    It’s so true, I constantly feel like I need to be studying instead of doing pretty much anything and everything I enjoy! I would be so grateful to be done!!

I tried! Delicious!

You are KILLING IT with the soup recipes this year girl!!!

    Ha thank you Ashley!! I’m sort of soup-obsessed so I’m glad not everyone is totally sick of them yet!!! 🙂

Love a good slow cooker soup recipe and this one is right up my alley. Will be making this over the weekend and I remember the days of nothing but college papers and exams.

I’m making this today. Looks great! – Do you add the cream cheese in the beginning or when just before serving?

Thanks

    You add it in the begging, then a few minutes before serving be sure to stir the soup so the cream cheese is incorporated. 🙂

Love the recipe, but afraid of calories (you know, those little things who live in your closet and saw your clothes every night to make it tighter:). I really would like to know how many calories in a serving and how big the serving is? Thank you!

    Hi Lora! Oh those dreaded calories! I don’t have the nutrition facts but when I do want to get them for a recipe I use http://www.myfitnesspal.com – it’s easy to use and I feel like it’s pretty accurate. 🙂
