Broccoli Carrot Cheese Soup Recipe

Soup in the crockpot is the GREATEST thing!  House smells great, it’s ready (within reason!) to serve give or take an hour (!) – and there’s almost always leftovers!  I thought it would be different to add in carrots to this recipe – and it really rounded out the flavor.  Feel free to make it without if you don’t have any on hand..
