There was one sound at the dinner table tonight Luckydevil and it was...mmmmmm...mmmmmm...mmmmmmm. This chowder is devine. Smooth, silky, creamy and oh so rich. The flavor and textures are simply outstanding. The corn, potatoes, onions and celery were perfectly cooked and surrounded in a wonderful flavored cream bath. The recipe was quick and oh so easy to make, but best of all, its with ingredients always found in the pantry. Your family or guests will thank you for days to come for serving this treat to them. My dh has already asked when we can have this again, thank you so much for sharing. Made for Pac 2011!
