So a thought occurred to me today as I was leaving Trader Joe’s. I am frozen, there are wind gusts and the term “cold snap” pops into my head.
What’s with this term. Why is it called a cold snap?
Pretty sure nobody cares, but here is the dictionary.com definition:
A sudden onset of a relatively brief period of cold weather.
Weather that rivals a rubber band snapping on your face.
Philosophical I know. :/.
Even so, I was convinced the meal tonight had to be warm, and hearty, but not heavy. There is a difference.
My 10-year-old son had practice right at the dinner hour. Of course. How the heck do people pull off family meals while their kids play sports? Still trying to figure this one out.
In short: The slow cooker. Again.
Warning: This recipe is a semi-cheat soup.
Cold Snap Soup in the Slow Cooker
- 2-32 oz Boxes Soup of Choice (I used Trader Joe’s Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper, but this would work with black bean, butternut squash, whatev…)
- 1 can Cream Style Corn
- 1 cup Nutritional Yeast (for protein and that “nutritional punch” I mentioned above)
