Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Soup and WIAW

I am not so happy that a nor'easter is coming our way.  I am barely dealing with the cold and now we have a chance of snow.  No. Thank. You.

Breakfast has not been memorable.  I might be switching to oatmeal for breakfast soon.  The smoothies are just not exciting.  If only there was a way to incorporate spinach in oatmeal.  Something tells me that would be gross.

Lunch on the other hand was very excited.  Broccoli Cheddar Soup.  Warm deliciousness. 

Plus it was made in the slow cooker, in a throw it all in and wait way.  Having a meal like this welcoming you at the door is fabulous.

Dinner was roasted chicken.  Nothing special for seasoning, just salt and pepper, but it was so warming.  We had a salad mix and some bread and cheese.  Simple, simple, simple.

This week has exhausted me already and I cannot wait for the weekend. I don't know how some people stayed up waiting for the election to be called.   I was soundlessly asleep when that went down.

What is your favorite, simple meal for dinner?
