Hello Monday. You have managed to sneak up on me once again.


think I need a redo on my weekend. Don’t you hate when it’s Friday and everyone is like hip hurrah and before you know it, it’s Sunday night and you wonder ‘where did the weekend go’?

Who with me for scraping it all and doing it again?

I see a lot of virtual hands. Even though this weekend passed quickly, I achieved a few main goals:

The husband and I spent most of Saturday scrubbing our entire apartment from top to bottom. Not that it was super messy or anything. I get into these crazy cleaning streaks where I need to clean. And I must not clean alone. And because I get cranky doing everything alone, the husband is forced to clean up with me. I love how it worked. 🙂 This weekend turned out to be one of those crazy cleaning weekends. After what seemed like 8 hours of cleaning (but probably more like 2), we invited our neighbors for a little dessert and a movie night. It’s always fun with those two. We celebrated a lot until 3 am. JA. <— If playing cards in pajamas counts as a party!

I spent the whole Sunday sick. And I mean really sick. As if there is so much congestion between my brain and my eyes that my face hurts, sick. You know the type of sick person where you go from lying in bed to lying in front of the TV to drinking soup for every meal of the day and still not being able to tell the difference in taste between soup and oatmeal. And the kind where you go through a few boxes of Kleenex an hour.

Luckily for me, I had a big slow cooker filled with this creamy wild rice soup with chicken to sip all Sunday on. My poor throat thanks me a million times. But a whole day of my weekend passed, stolen right under my nose!

Like most of my slow cooker soup recipes, this one is very easy to prepare.

We started by throwing a pound of boneless, skinless chicken into the slow cooker with some carrots, onions, and celery. I cut my own vegetables, but if you’re in a pinch, you can always substitute the store-bought mirepoix mix. You’re also going to need a couple of bay leaves, some garlic and, of course, one should use wild rice in chicken and wild rice soup. Make sure you use regular wild rice, you won’t want to use the steamed wild rice as they will get really soft.

Also, my recipe calls for a mixture of seasonings. Be sure to use one that doesn’t contain salt. We’re using 2 whole tablespoons (yes, you read that right), so we want our seasoning to be salt-free. I used Trader Joe’s 21-condiment greeting for my chicken and wild rice soup. Any kind of herb you can think of is in this baby and makes this soup taste fantastic!

Enter the chicken broth and a couple of cups of water and this chicken soup with wild rice will cook itself. I know I’ve said this before, but self-cooked meals are always my favorite type of meals. You can cook this soup in the slow cooker on the low or high setting. I’ve done it both ways and both work well.

30 minutes before the cooking time ends, remove the chicken breast and let it cool before crushing it with 2 forks. In a small saucepan, heat the olive oil and butter. Add the flour and let the flour cook for 1 minute. Beat the milk and let everything be nice and thick. This is the “creamy” part of the creamy wild chicken rice soup. Add this along with the chicken back into the slow cooker. Stir well until thickened.

That’s all!

This cozy, creamy wild rice soup with chicken stuck to the ribs will keep you nice and warm on a cold winter night. I love the fact that it makes my sore throat feel better too. Also, the fact that I didn’t have to do much to make the soup. A big bowl of soup 😉,

with lots of crusty bread to dip is all you need. Did I mention all the time you’ll save not having to cook dinner? I

love how my slow cooker friend is there to help me get over my sore throats and colds. What a good friend.
