Made for a wonderful lunch, Barb!! What a haven for left-overs (had 1/2 can of creamed corn and about 1/2 cup cubed ham; tasty and quick, since I left out the potatoes (and the baby corn). THANKS for posting. Made for the BellyWarmers event in Cooking Photos.

This was delicious! And super easy. It did take some time, but the flavor was definitely worth it. I left out the baby corn and white wine (for the kids), and served with Recipe #201122, which was perfect for getting that last bit of chowder in the bowl! I didn't think there was enough liquid (I added 1/2 c. water to compensate for the wine omission), but was pleasantly surprised. Thank you so muchf or posting! This definitely is a keeper for our ham loving family!
