Creamy corn chowder

I had a major craving for some corn chowder yesterday, and after sadly discovering that I was missing like 5 ingredients for the VWAV version, I decided to scour the internets for another one. Behold! I found a recipe for Creamy Vegan Corn Chowder on Allrecipes, and I had ALL of the ingredients! Woohoo! This chowdah was super tasty, and was even better the next day! It didn't seem to be thickening up as much as it should, so I doubled the flour, and of course I used a lot more herbs and a lot of extra garlic :) This was a really satisfying winter-time dinner served with whole wheat garlic bread.

WOAH! That looks fab - could be a perfect meal for dinner tonight.
I've never had Corn Chowder before so this week could be a week of firsts for me.

Corn chowdah does sound great right now. I have this desire to make as many winter foods as possible before spring strikes.

Corn Chowder sounds perfect! Scott was sick all weekend and damnit, I didn't make soup for him b/c I was feeling soup uninspired! The bread looks great too...

i get overwhelmed by all of the good food i see every day. i wish i could just hole myself up in a kitchen for a week and just cook, cook, and cook.

btw, i have a t-shirt with that sexy babe w/afro on it. it says 'ladies first' underneath the caption of her with the gun. i found it at goodwill of all places!
