We are truly sliding into the home stretch for this semester. This is actually the last week of classes, Saturday we start finals. I can’t believe this semester is almost over, it has gone so fast! We are winding down with events on campus, just a few more before the winter break. I have to work this weekend and again next weekend. I have been so tired, emotionally and physically from my trip home and I just couldn’t face a big, heavy dinner last night so I kept it simple with a roasted corn chowder.
I got this recipe from a neighbor a few years back, it is really simple. You roast off two bags of frozen corn, add it to some sautéed onions, red peppers, celery, and garlic. Add stock, a few potatoes and a nice helping of bacon. Finish it off with a generous splash of heavy cream and EAT!
I paired it with grilled ham and cheese sandwiches for a really quick, easy dinner. From start to finish the entire meal took me an hour to put together. Not too shabby for a weeknight meal, if I do say so myself.
Happy December folks!
