(For Friday Favorites we feature past recipes you might have missed, and this Slow Cooker Lemony Turkey Soup with Spinach and Orzo from Kalyn's Kitchen was so good; if you're lucky enough to have some leftover turkey next week you must try this soup!)

Normally when I share a new slow cooker recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen I wait a few months before I feature that recipe here, but since Thanksgiving is less than a week away and this Slow Cooker Lemony Turkey Soup with Spinach and Orzo was so, so good, it just cut to the front of the line.  I shared this delicious soup with my sister Pam and her family, and they all pronounced it to be a keeper; hope you enjoy!

  1. I'm not making turkey this year, so no leftovers -- but I'm going to use a rotisserie turkey breast from the market to make this soup.
