Weather in Minnesota is very fickle this year. Some day's it HOT and some day's it is down right cold, rainy and dreary. On the dreary day's, I love to pull out my crock and throw some food in it to cook all day....making the house small warm and cozy.
One of the newest favorites in our house is Crock Pot Potato Soup. Super easy and totally yummy....you have to try it! So here is the recipe~
Crock-Pot Potato Soup (Yum!!)

1 cup water
3 tbsp flour
1 cup milk
2 cups shredded cheese. (I like mexican blend)
