What's for dinner?

We are having another cold snap in Dallas (no moderate temperatures here - it's either 30° or 85°). My friend Page emailed me and said, "You said you needed ideas for your blog. How about posting some soup recipes for this cold weather we're having?"

I just made Hockey Boy's favorite soup Saturday night, but alas, I did not take any pictures and it's already gone. But here is the recipe:

Corn Chowder

4 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
¼ cup butter
1 onion, chopped
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 13-ounce can evaporated milk
1 16½-ounce can cream-style corn
2 teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon pepper

Start potatoes and 4 cups water in a large pot or Dutch oven over high heat. Meanwhile sauté onion in butter until soft. Add onion and all other ingredients to soup pot and reduce heat. Cook for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

I serve this with a piece of cheese toast and a green salad. It's delicious on a cold night!

Sounds super-yummy! Anything graced with bacon is a-okay in my book!

Landree stayed sick the whole time we were home because of the weather, but don't worry it will be different tomorrow, right?

My family would LOVE this...they love corn. I just cannot stomach the texture of creamed corn.... Hmm.... I 'll make it for them on a Judo night.

I'll e-mail you tonight!
