Shrimp Chowder

We are having cold, damp weather and chowder was a perfect, warming meal.  You can whip this up in no time at all.
Fry a few pieces of bacon and set the bacon aside for another use.

Saute 1 diced onion in the bacon grease.  You can skip the bacon and just use butter if you want to.

Add some diced celery and some cubed red potatoes.  Add about 5 cups of chicken bouillon, bring it to a slight boil and then turn it to simmer until the potatoes are tender.  Add a couple bouillon cubes for added flavor.

Add 2 cups of corn.  Add S&P to taste.

Peel and de-vein 1 pound of shrimp.  Cut them into bite sized pieces.

Add them to the pot and cook at a simmer until the shrimp turn pink.

Add 1 quart of milk and 1-1/2 C. of grated cheddar cheese.

Add some chopped fresh parsley.  Dinner in a bowl.  Serve with oyster crackers.

Dinner in a bowl indeed
We're having warm and damp weather over here right now but this would be great anyway :-)

I'll see if I can remember to buy some schrimps tomorrow. By the way, if I fry bacon I can't set it aside for later, I'll eat them directly :-) :-)

Have a great day!

Looks perfect for our cold foggy weather!
Bacon makes everything but chocolate taste great! And they say even that is good.
Our weather was overcast and cool today..and I loved it. No rain, no threat of snow..but at least it was coolish. Getting So. Cal. to act like it's Fall isn't easy.
What a great dish for a cool, damp Fall day. :) HOW I love shrimp and everything in that dish. Wonderful!

Yum! Wish the kids ate shrimp! Maybe they'll just have to fish it out or make two versions. Ate dinner but hungry again!
