Chowder on a Cloudy Day

Yesterday started out beautifully but as the day progressed, clouds rolled in and we had a few little scattered showers; temperatures got a bit cooler.

The perfect time for something to warm the body. Corn chowder is a favorite around here.

If you eat bacon, then you can cut it into pieces, fry it up and use the grease for sauteing 2 chopped onions. Otherwise, just use a bit of olive oil for sauteing. (Optional: add 2 chopped tomatoes) After a few minutes,add two cans of creamed corn, 2 cans of skim milk, salt and pepper to taste. (Lots of black pepper makes it really tasty.)

So easy and so good. If you use the bacon, you can crumble it on top when serving. A slice of thick, crusty bread is always delicious with soup.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Wednesday. Friendship blessings, Tammy

OH, I love corn chowder! There is nothing better than soup with yummy bread too. I can't eat much bread (or shouldn't) but it is too irresistible with a bowl of soup. Add a little butter or butter and garlic powder and it's a terrific meal. I just had a big bowl of homemade vegetable soup with parmesan cheese tonight. Perfect this time of year!

Seems that you get weather a day before we do. We have lots of cloud cover today, but no rain yet. We will see if we get any... Funny that the cooler day made you think of chowder. I have chicken soup in the fridge that is calling my name. Hope you enjoyed your chowder!!!

love,
Renee

Just a question.....how cool is cool over there? :)

The chowder looks very delicious and I'm sure it was great on a cool day. Sky photo is beautiful. We are now enjoying sun and 70s here in the Arizona desert. Will probably rain the end of the week. Always does for the Phoenix Open Golf (now has a different name but still the Phoenix Open to me)

I'LL BE RIGHT OVER, OH.......
CHOWDER'S, THEY ARE THE BEST.
I LOVE CORN CHOWDER TOO, WITH NOODLES, AND CRISP BACON.
WHEN I WAS A KID {THERE WERE 7 KIDS) MY MOM MADE HUGE POTS OF HOMEMADE SOUP, AND CHOWDERS WITH CRUSTY BREAD, AND BUTTER.
IT WAS SO GOOD. WE HAD SNOW AGAIN, SOOOOOO COLD, LOVE YOUR MUSIC. HOPE YOUR SUN COMES OUT, RIZZI

I have heard the name Corn chowder, but never knew what was in it! To warm up, though, nothing like a good bowl of carrot or tomato soup for me! :o) Cold front entering the country today, which will probably translate into light showers (our heat + cold from the north = showers) I think tonight will call for some yummy soup ;o)
have a nice day!

Perfect for a rainy or cold day!

We haven't had chowder in ages....that sure sparked a nice memory, though.
When I was growing up, the local firestations in town would cook up vats of corn chowder and all you had to do was bring containers (and $) and they'd give you as much as you wanted. It was great (probably the bacon) and a bit spicey and cooked over a fire outside the station. I can smell it now!
Thanks for tweaking my memory bank, Tammy!

Hugs,
Jan

That sounds like my Nana's recipe! Oh I can taste it now...thanks for the memory Tammy!

Faye said...

Tammy, that sounds so good. Today is chilly, well, actually cold, and rainy. It's just a few degrees above freezing so a bowl of that chowder would really taste great.

June said...

Hi Tammy,
Oh boy does this look good! Just the thing to warm the soul. The temp here only made it to 23 degrees F today, so a perfect day to try your corn chowder.
hugs to you...

Theresa said...

yum! I love corn chowder! We do soup a lot in the winter, it's the perfect dinner! Happy Wednesday! (or is it Thursday) Theresa xoxo

Serena said...

YUM!! Soups are just the best....so many variations! I make a bacon (being vegetarian, I use a mock bacon), cabbage, carrot, potato and corn soup which uses a corn chowder base. I love the flavour of the creamed corn in it.

Love,
Serena xo
