Corn Chowder

I've never been a fan of anything that ends in "chowder". It just doesn't sound at all appealing. But, when I looked in the February issue of Real Simple magazine, I had to try the Smoky Corn Chowder. I made it tonight, along with a salad (topped w/ cheese and bacon) and berries w/ whip. It was really great! I plan on making it again! It was easy to make and great for a cold night! I halved the recipe and it made 3 servings. ( I used cayenne in place of the crushed red pepper and just used regular paprika. For the bacon, I used the Oscar Mayer heat and serve bacon, but still prepared it according to directions, using 6 slices)
Last night I just popped in a Wolfgang Puck pizza and of course had salad and berries. We like the pepperoni and cheese. I must say that those pizzas are really good!! It makes a quick and easy church night meal.

Tomorrow night I'll make what Josh and I call "Chipper Chicken." It's one of Josh's favorites that I haven't made in a long time.

I must say, you guys eat a LOT of berries. But, they do always look good. What's this chipper chicken you speak of?

I know! I just love berries!!! It's the only fruit I'll actually eat if it's around. Apples tend to rot, because I'm rarely interested in eating them! Plus, berries are "cuter"!

Chipper chicken is chicken that is coated in crushed tortilla chips. I'll post the recipe tomorrow.
