Corn, Corn and PW Corn and Cheese Chowder

Sweet!  I'm so happy to not only be a member of the Sweet As Pie Cooking Club, but also to get to choose a recipe for the upcoming selection for March.  Yay! 

But first there's the corn.  There's a lot of corn around here.  My father grows it in his garden and we freeze it for use during the winter months. 

It's good, the whole family loves it.  I mean, we have it every other Sunday after church for lunch.  Sometimes prepared 2 ways.  We joke about it, "Are we having corn today?"  It's a lot of corn!  It's in his freezer, my sister's freezer and my freezer.   See? 

Told ya.

PW's Corn and Cheese Chowder was a good opportunity for me to use some of that corn in a recipe that I had never tried.  Actually, I have had corn chowder only once in my life.  I don't remember where so obviously I was not impressed!  All I needed to purchase from the store was the cheese and peppers, the rest of the ingredients were on hand.  

My attention to detail was lacking though, because I didn't notice the red,yellow,orange colors for the peppers in the recipe.   I picked up green and red and they turned out just fine. 

I also used whole milk instead of half and half since that's what I had on hand.   I do like the way Sweet and Savory Snacks lightened this recipe.

I did use less cheese than PW, and more onion?  Yes, we like onion too.   Thinking the Bassman wouldn't think this was man's food, I served it along with some chicken fingers.

Add some fresh cracked pepper and enjoy!  The Bassman and I liked it.  There were leftovers for him to take to work and we gave some to our kids to take home.  Nothing went to waste!
