Slow Cooker Summer Squash & Corn Chowder

It’s starting to feel like fall.  Not due to the weather (at least here in So Cal), but football season is making me want to curl up with a blanket by the fire and start singing Christmas music (I always start early).

And, of course, this means that I also need to start breaking out the soups, stews and chowders.  And the regular use of the slow cooker for everything and anything due to my super busy fall work schedule.

But there’s still some fab summer veggies out there, so why not combine all of the love into a recipe like the one found here?  And make it for the crock pot?  Done.

    It sounds delicious. But you would also have to find a substitute for the chicken broth if you wanted a vegetarian dish – not just the bacon bits as stated. Just saying…
