Crockpot Sausage Potato Soup

This is my throw it together, let it cook slow, enjoy it on a winter day soup. It snowed the morning I made this & there is just something about snowy days that makes you want to cuddle up with a blanket & warm up with a bowl of soup or hot cocoa. Well, I opted for soup, b/c it’s more filling & less calories (you know…big new years resolution to be fit, got to maximize my caloric intake.)  Anyway, I altered this recipe from it’s original owner. I wanted more veggies & a little more flavor. It turned out really nice. Simple, yet delicious. Not bad for a lazy day!
