rachel's cheesy corn chowder.

24 June 2010

rachel's cheesy corn chowder.

what y'all will need:
3 cups milk
2 cans cream corn OR 1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
2 cans new potatoes, coarsley chopped
1 lb. smoked sausage, sliced
2 cups sharp shredded cheese
2 tbl. parsley

the making part:
mix milk, corn, potatoes & smoked sausage together in a stock pot.
warm thoroughly over medium-high heat.

remove from heat.
add shredded cheese & parsley.
once the cheese is completely melted, add salt & pepper to taste.
{the cheese will thicken your chowder.}

trust me that it's yum. yum. yum.

note: using grilled corn on the cob instead of whole kernel corn is amazing.
just sayin'.

oh & if you're the brave type...
add some crushed red pepper flakes or some of your fav hot sauce.
it kicks it up a notch.

hope y'all enjoy.

xo, rachel

what can i say?!?!
i'm in ♥ with this quilt.
how's that for a predictable statement?!?!

this quilt will have a special place in my heart because of my pregnancy.
i announced the pinwheel sampler quilt along before i knew i was preggo.
well i had a tiny suspicion, but i was being naive.

i think "morning sickness" every single time i look at this quilt.
& how i just HAD to push myself to not let anyone down.
{i had over 350 of yall to answer to.}
it was a struggle, but SO worth it.

please see our flickr group for other completed pinwheel samplers.
pinwheel eye candy galore.

quilt stats:
fabric = simple abundance by bonnie & camille for moda
size = 58 1/2" x 58 1/2"
quilting = darla padilla
complete directions found on my sidebar

oh & for the record...
if i had it to do over again, i totally would've used red print for the binding.
just sayin'.
