Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Bing Crosby had it right! Honestly, I love a little chill in the air this time of year. And what better way to take the chill off than a steaming bowl of hearty soup? This particular recipe is a family favorite and one that I often take to new mommies. (In fact, it will be on its way to one in a couple of days! Guess that's why it's on my mind today.) Get your spoons ready for a yummy soup to warm you inside and out! **Note: this soup is especially delicious when you add the secret ingredient... good fellowship!
Corn and Sausage Chowder
1 pkg. smoked sausage, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
3 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 tsp. salt, or to taste
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 tsp. dried basil
2 cups water
1 17oz can cream style corn
1 16 oz can whole kernel corn, drained
1 12 oz can evap. milk

Saute onion and sausage just until onions are clear. Into a large pot, put the sausage, onions, potatoes, spices, and water. Bring to a boil, then turn down heat and simmer for 15 min. Stir in corn and evaporated milk. Cover and heat thoroughly.

Yum, this sounds good! It's cold here too. I like winter until Feb. and then I'm ready to be outside more.

Looks tasty! If corn didn't give us the runs so bad I'd whip a batch tomorrow! I love corn, and so do the kids, but it does NOT love us!

Wendy - I agree, by Feb., I'm ready for warm days and flowers!
Janice - Yikes! Definitely stay away from this one, then!
