Boy the weather here in Western PA has really taken a turn for the extra chilly this week. We’re expected to have lows in the 30’s this weekend, eek! I’m so not ready to dig out a jacket yet.
I can definitely tell when the nights are getting colder by the amount of pets in our bed. We usually only have our yellow lab in bed with us but the past few nights we’ve been blessed with two cats too. It gets a little crowded with all 5 of us, thank goodness for king size beds!
With these chilly evenings, I’ve been craving warm hearty soups. This week I tried this corn and potato chowder that is to die for! I’m usually not a huge fan of cream based soups but this one is really great.
The corn adds a nice sweetness to it while the chicken stock adds a nice chicken flavor to the creamy base. This recipe makes a huge pot of soup so be prepared for leftovers if you’re only feeding two people like me. My husband has been taking the leftovers to work for lunch all week.
