Skinny on Slow Cooker Ham & Wild Rice Soup
I was going to substitute fat free evaporated milk for the half-and-half in this ham and wild rice soup, but after checking my Weight Watchers calculator and determining that it only decreased the calories per cup by 8, I decided it wasn't worth it.
Hearty and delicious, Rod and I really enjoyed this soup for supper last night. It's definitely a keeper.
