When there is a pot of soup or chowder simmering on the stove in the Fall, it brings fond memories back to me - my mother’s chicken soup when I was a child, eating barley beef soup in my mother-in-law’s kitchen in upstate New York with snow falling outside. This chowder is perfect for cooler weather. It takes a little preparation time but is ready to eat in an hour or less. Add a platter of sliced fruit and cheese and crusty bread to make this a terrific dinner for family or friends. Enjoy!

Ingredients

8 oz. bacon
2 large potatoes, diced
1/4 cup green pepper, diced
1 14 oz. can creamed corn
1 lb. frozen large salad shrimp, thawed
1 carrot, diced
1 cup frozen corn
1 large onion, diced
2 cups evaporated milk
1 stalk celery diced
1 bay leaf
1 tsp. salt
3 tbl. flour
1/2 tsp. pepper
4 cups water

Add remaining ingredients except shrimp and simmer an additional 10 minutes. Add shrimp and simmer for 5 more minutes. Remove bay leaf and serve.
