Homemade Vegetable Beef Soup

In this post I talked about wanting to make a homemade vegetable beef soup. I had a few requirements when searching for the right recipe. I wanted it to be done with fresh vegetables and use a crock pot. I ended up following this recipe.
 The only thing I would change about the recipe is how to do the meat. We trimmed very little fat then seared it. Next time, I think we will trim maybe more of the fat or cook the meat separately and add it at the end. It made the actual soup part a little too fatty in my opinion. However, John loved it. He said it just needed some Mexican cornbread (his favorite)!
 Even if the soup didn't turn out exactly how I pictured it, I had the best time going to Soulard, picking out the vegetables, cutting them up, and making the actual soup and doing it all with John. I loved it! However, it felt like it took nine years to cut up those vegetables, but we made it through. Anytime a recipe gives a prep time, I know to just go ahead and double the time for myself.

Do you have any good crock pot soup recipes? I would love to try them!

I will leave you with my and John's attempt of a photoshoot before we left Soulard Market. Photoshoot attempts always make me laugh, and this outfit is one of my absolute faves! So comfy and cute! Some of the items were sold out, but I linked some that are similar below:)
