Minnesota Wild Rice Soup

3/4 c. uncooked wild rice
7-10 slices of crisp crumbled bacon or cooked chicken (optional)
1 8 oz can of drained sliced mushrooms
1 c. half and half
4 chicken flavored boullion cubes
2 T. butter
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 c. water
2 stalks of chopped celery

Combine all ingredients in a crockpot and cook on high for four hours.

Notes: I found this recipe on a magnet at the airport last time we passed through and bought it thinking it would make a nice addition to the fridge. Then, after staring at it every time I opened the refrigerator door it occurred to me that the ingredients looked pretty good. Since it got kind of cold this weekend I gave it a try and holy moly was it good!
