I have been so busy.....I have my other blog My Blog - My Journey, I am working on 4 reviews that I need to get done this week, plus work on recipes for this blog. Whew, I'm tired just thinking about it.
I have been wanting to make a Corn Chowder and my Nueske's order for their Smoked Boneless Pork Chops arrived, so it was time to make that soup. This is my first time making a corn chowder and I am very pleased with the way it came out. I already got the first thumbs up when my husband was taking his bowl into the kitchen and he turned to me and said that was the best soup you have made yet.
Satisfaction.....my work is done.
