I love soup! It’s so easy to make and is even easier to heat up and enjoy as leftovers. Soup is a great way to warm up when it’s chilly outside and get in more veggies. My fall favorites are Instant Pot Beef & Barley Soup, Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup,  Ham and Potato Soup and of course this Chicken Pot Pie Soup.
