...mmmm mmmm good, SOUP!
I actually didn't think the day was that cold, but the morning was a bit chilly and put me in a soup mood. I invited mom, dad and Katie over for some corn chowder. It's very tasty and easy to prepare...
Deluxe Corn Chowder
(an adaption of "Grandma's Corn Chowder" on allrecipes.com)
1/2 c. diced bacon (optional)
4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 medium onion, chopped small
2 c. water
1 large Knorr vegetarian vegetable boullion cube
(or chicken flavor)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
3 c. cream-style corn (about 2 cans)
2 tsp. salt
2 c. half-and-half
black pepper to taste
Mix potatoes and onion into a large cooking pot with 2 Tbsp. of oil. Cook and stir for five minutes. Pour in the water, boullion cubes and corn; stir. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and cover cooking pot. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently, until potatoes are tender.
Warm the half-and-half in a small saucepan removing from heat before it boils, add to chowder just before serving.
