Simple, straightforward, basic corn chowder. No extra veggies...just the way I like it. One kid *did* ask for bacon but tuff luck today. I did use 1/2 & 1/2 instead of cream because 1. mom would have complained & 2. I was out of cream. ;) This is a perfect recipe. I made a double batch so I'm finishing it now for breakfast. I used fresh corn cut off the cobs that were leftover from dinner the other day. I also used a whole onion which was much more that 3TBx2 with excellent results. It just doesn't get any better. Thanks!!
