Tonights Dinner

Potato Chowder

Quick Corn and Potato Chowder

2 cups water
2 cups milk
2 medium yellow/white/red potatoes (skin on- chopped)
1 can corn- drained (yes, CANNED CORN! ZOMG!)
1 chicken boullion cube
sea salt, black pepper, basil, onion powder, celery salt, smoked paprika
corn starch & water (it's better to mix the corn starch in water first & then use it to thicken)

(we also added real bacon bits and obviously didn't add the corn)

In a medium saucepan: add the water & boullion cube- cover & cook the potatoes until tender (about 15 min or so)
turn the heat down to medium low & add the corn & milk (don't drain the potatoes because the starchy water will add flavor & thickness)- mix & then add seasonings to taste (not too much, no need to overwhelm, but make sure to use plenty of salt & pepper)

Allow the chowder to simmer for about 5-10 min- while it simmers, add the corn starch (to desired thickness)
Remove from heat & ladel into bowls- NOM NOM!!!

p.s. you can top with cheese or bacon or whatever you want- i just keep it simple :) [We added cheese to the top)

Cheddar Biscuits
Biquick Mix
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Follow the directions on the Bisquick box- add the cheese into the mix & plop them on a greased baking sheet (usually not greased but cheese requires grease people!)
Bake for about 10 min- butter & eat! YUM!

OMG! TO.DIE.FOR!!! I would eat my weight in these and then marry them if i could.

Thank you T.Bird. If you weren't already married and a mom i'd as you to marry me and be the mother of my children
