Confessions of a Fauf

Monday, November 14, 2011


The other night, when storms were brewing here in town, I made this delicious corn and cheese chowder. I decided to be a little fancy and make my own bread bowls . I found mini sourdough loaves at Trader Joes for 99 cents each. I cut out the center and filled the bread bowls with soup. It was the perfect meal for a chilly autumn evening!
1 large potato diced
1 bay leaf
1/4 tsp cummin
4 tbsp butter
4tbsp flour
2 1/3 cups buttermilk
5 green onions chopped
2 cups corn (frozen or fresh)
1/4 tsp of each: nutmeg,
ceyenne red pepper,
chili powder
2 cups grated cheese

Boil potato, bay leaf, and cummin in 2 cups of water for 15 min. covered.
Meanwhile, melt butter in saucepan, add flour and mix until pasty and bubbly. Gradually stir in buttermilk. On medium heat, whisk buttermilk mixture until it thickens. When potatoes are done, add them with their water and spices into buttermilk mixture. Add onions, corn and seasonings. Let soup simmer for 10 min. Add cheese and stir to melt.

Your soup does look good. Better than Panera Bread.

Yummmm. I'd like to order some when the winter temperatures drop in December. I"ll pay top dollars
for a bowl or two, or increase Westly's already substantial inheritance... Dad Shaw
