    Hi Debbi,

    Thanks, this was inspired by one of my next door neighbors Chris, she gardens along with her big friendly poodle Babette, when it’s nice out, and I love to see what she does with her garden, she’s always rearranging and weeding, planting new elements…

    Joyce – I don’t know if you saw this already, but here it is again. You are going to LOVE this Corn Chowder.

    CAS’ Corn Chowder (or Chowda)
    1 medium Potato – diced or chopped (depends on how big you like your pieces)
    1 medium Onion – diced
    1 medium Red Pepper – diced or chopped (depends on how big you like your pieces)
    1 Garlic Clove – minced
    1 pound Sausage – sliced or crumbled (I like it crumbled, that way you get some with every spoonful)
    3 tablespoons Flour
    3 cups Milk (we use fat-free lactaid, Dad’s lactose intolerant)
    2 Chicken Bouillon Cubes
    1 16 ounce bag Frozen Whole-kernel Corn – thawed (otherwise it takes forever to heat)
    1 regular size can Creamed Corn (14-16 ounces)
    1 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
    1 regular size can diced Tomatoes
    Salt & Pepper to taste

    Spray a large saucepan/pot with cooking spray and heat over medium heat; add potato, onion, red pepper, garlic and sausage and cook until sausage is lightly browned; sprinkle with flour, stir and cook 1 minute; add milk, bouillon cubes, thawed frozen corn and creamed corn; bring to boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes; add cheese and tomatoes, salt and pepper to taste, stir till cheese melts; EAT AND ENJOY!!!!

    By the way, I love this pick.
