Warm Your Tummy

Even though we may be wanting to soak in the sunshine at the beach~ the truth is it is January, and it is cold! We love soup in the wintertime. It will warm your tummies.
This is a thick and filling potato soup... one of our favorites. Corn Potato Chowder
5-6 small potatoes
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole corn
1/2 onion, diced
3 stalks celery diced
2 cloves garlic, diced
2 Tbs butter
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup milk
Brown celery, onion, and garlic in butter. Add chicken broth. Clean potatoes and peel them or not- your preference. Dice potatoes into small chunks, place in the pot and bring to a boil. Cook until potatoes are tender. Using a potato smasher, break up potatoes, leaving some chunks. Add corn. Cook uncovered to reduce broth, cook until thick. Lower heat and add milk. Salt and pepper to taste.
We top it with grated cheddar cheese and a side of cornbread.

Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

Ok, here's another Hey y'all! This looks scrumptious! I did a Creamy Corn Chowder on my blog that is similar, but this is different enough that I'm just gonna give it a try!

Wow you have a large following on your blogger. I didn't realize ya'll had so much packaged food items. That is great, do you sell them to retailers?
