Corn Chowder

Corn Chowder

I'm not a fan of the cold.  The kids get stir crazy, which drives me crazy and makes me grumpy.  And it's cold.  I really, really don't like to be cold.  When I start to shiver I really shiver.  It takes, what seems like, forever to warm up and then my body aches because of the shivers.


  • On the bright side, cold weather is a great excuse to make soups, stews, and chilies.  Like this Corn Chowder.  I was surprised how well it went over with the kids.  Most of them had seconds!
