Comfort Food

When we left to go to church this morning, our thermometer said 60 degrees.  When we got back.. it was 45 degrees.  Now that's a front.  Two hours, in the middle of the day, dropping fifteen degrees and it's just downright not fair.  I am a summer girl at heart that's for sure.  I would much rather go in to church with it a tad cool and come out to a warm sunny afternoon.  I always have trouble adjusting and it can just downright put me in a mood. 

I did, however, welcome this evening's chill outside with warm, comfort food thoughts.  Several years ago I bought a packet of Corn Chowder mix from a Tastefully Simple party and fell in love the minute I tasted this soup.  Unlucky for me the company took the mix out of it's main line and hasn't brought it back since.  But this fall I ran across an easy and oh-so-good recipe here.  That Pioneer Woman is fantastic.  So tonight I made the chowder along with beer cheese bread that is so easy it's silly and invited a few family members over to eat. 

Oh, P.S. I also added teeny, weeny shrimp to the chowder.  YUM 

Have a wonderful week!

Isn't this the most lovely looking salt you have ever laid eyes on?!?  It came from a friend who is in a salt club.  Have you ever heard of such?  It looks and feels like sand but tastes like salt heaven.
