Crab and Corn Chowder

"This is a very easy soup I came up with that tastes great for a fall dinner! (I needed soup for dinner--I had just been to the dentist!) I use whole goat's milk instead of cream, but they have the same quality (and not many people have goat's milk!) Update: As a shortcut, I often use a bag of Simply Potatoes Diced Potatoes and Onion instead of the potato and onion--no cutting or extra time on the onion needed!"

<p>My name is Karen and I live West of Chicago (on the edge of no where!) with my DH, our two German Shepherds, and our two daughters. I love to golf, garden (except for the weeding!), am addicted to romance novels (and good science fiction), and I love to bake--usually cakes from scratch when I have the time! Since getting married, I have been cooking a lot more and am having a lot of fun trying new recipes! And&nbsp;now that I have two little ones, the&nbsp;slow cooker is my friend!&nbsp; The girls take a lot of time, but they are worth it!<br /><br />The dogs are my babies too--though they are about as big as I am! &nbsp;It has been a bit of a challenge at times, as&nbsp;they both have severe hip dysplasia, but they are great dogs and I have learned so much about arthritis! I have also learned a lot about cancer, as our female was diagnosed with bone cancer.&nbsp; She is now on three, but doing great post-chemo.&nbsp; They are both&nbsp;great with the kids and love to ***** little hands and feet! and noses! and ears! and...! <br /><br />I participated in the 2006 Fall PAC--and what a great game/program/thing! So much fun! <br /><br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /> <br /><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting" /></p>
