Two Corn Soup Recipes #FrenchFridayswithDorie

Sometimes I drive myself batty, and most likely my family, with my blog ideas.  We had Corn Soup on the French Fridays with Dorie schedule this week…and I’d been meaning to make a favorite corn chowder recipe since eating my first ear of sweet corn this July.  Who cares if they both have a boatload of different garnishes?  Or that my kitchen would be full of dirty chopping boards and pans once both were made?  I was just antsy for soup after a long, hot summer where any added heat in the kitchen would have been insane (but maybe I was there already???).  Our cool mornings this week were teasing us with their autumnal breezes…and I was ready!
