Today for my SAMM link up--I am doing one of our LONG TIME FAMILY FAVORITES--Corn Chowder. This chowder has been in our family for generations! And has been our traditional Christmas Eve dinner for as long as I can remember. It is one of those SUPER AWESOME HOME COOKED MEALS that just remind you about everything that is good and homey.
It is really easy to make--but for some reason I don't make it often enough. I think it is because it was always made at special occasions growing up--that I don't think of it as an everyday meal. But it is SOOO good that it should be! And you HAVE to serve it with some warm--just out of the oven--dinner rolls. DIVINE!
So with no further ado--Here it is:
6-8 Slices of Bacon
1 can corn
1can cream corn
1 small onion chopped
2 c chicken broth
1 c water
2 c potatoes cubed
2 c celery
1 dash tobasco sauce
2 c milk
Fry bacon and crumble into pieces. Also fry the onions, celery. Then add the flour and toss with bacon, celery and onions. Put milk in a big pot and add everything else (besides the bacon mixture). Bring to a boil gradually. Stir in bacon mixture and cook until the potatoes are done. Serve with rolls.
Doesn't it look dreamy?
And because I am SO IN LOVE WITH MY NEW BACKSPASH--I just couldn't resist this next picture:
And yes I am cheating and using Rhodes rolls tonight. I know--it is neither thrifty nor domestic. But it is easy--and sometimes that wins over all.
