Hearty Soup for the Colder Days

After you come in from the chilled outdoors what could be more welcoming than a bowl of nourishing, thick chunky soup from the kitchen.

One of my all time favorites is cream of corn soup. The recipe below does not include it, but I always supplement mine with a couple of large potatoes cubed (small) and added in at the sautée stage.

Makes for a thicker, more filling soup. Enhanced flavor may be gained by substituting some heavy cream as part of the milk called for in the recipe or add it in even as an addition.

Want to really tickle your taste buds? How about adding some cubed bacon to the onions before you begin to sautée.

Won't keep you out of the kitchen much longer - here is the recipe from GroupRecipes that I keep making variations on. Good luck to you with the cold weather project and bon appetit.

* 3 cups fresh corn kernels shopping list
* 4 cups milk shopping list
* 3 tablespoons butter shopping list
* 1/2 medium white onion finely chopped shopping list

The following list of on-line cookie recipes was making the circuits a few years back in Christmas mailers. I was fascinated by it then and still am so I thought I would share it with those of you who love cookies.

Chill the milk and let's begin.
