We just got back from a family vacation and my head is spinning a little bit. Not just because of the mountains of laundry that need tackling and the abundance of emails to catch up on, but I feel like I left during summer and come home to Fall and it’s weirding me out a little bit. In the best way possible because I am r e a d y to for boots and drives up the canyon and lots and lots of SOUP.

Hey girl this looks so yummy!

Looks delicious! I buy frozen tortellini. Do you use frozen or refrigerated tortellin? Will I need to defrost it before putting it in the slow cooker for 20 minutes?

This looks wonderful? Can it be made with frozen tortellini, or is it best with the refrigerated type?
