Creamy Corn Chowder

They are predicting our first snow for this weekend; the temperature is already dropping, and we've had a drizzly rain all day. Such weather is ideal for this Creamy Corn Chowder. It will warm you from the top of your head to the tips of your toes. The flavor of the rich, creamy soup with the fresh sweetness of the corn make a delicious combination. The bacon and chives add an extra flavor pop as well. The easy-to-make, hearty soup can be whipped up in little time and will surely garner rave reviews.

Creamed Chicken a la King

This Chicken a la King is an old favorite and one that is a dream for the busy, budget-minded cook. A wonderful way to use leftover chicken, it is almost a deconstructed chicken pot pie. I like to prepare the thick chicken and vegetable sauce in my slow cooker, where, once the chicken is cooked through, it simmers until we are ready for dinner. To serve, ladle the Chicken a la King over rice, noodles, or (the hubby's favorite) biscuits, and dinner is done. This is my definition of real country comfort food, perfect to serve year-round, but ideal for a blustery autumn day.

What's For Supper: Menu October 27, 2014

I woke up this morning with a song stuck in my head....thankfully, it's a favorite (I Know Who I Am by Sinach)! When I was a kid, we went to Disney World; when we got home, my mom had "It's A Small World" stuck in her head, and soon the whole family had it running on a loop! Ugh! It took forever for us to get right again.
This week's menu has one of our new favorites, German Noodles with Smoked Sausage, and some untested recipes I'll be trying for the first time, like Carrot-Cabbage Casserole and Ham Casserole. If the new recipes are as delicious as I hope, I will surely share them with you.

BBQ Pork Chili

I love to find ways to utilize leftovers that are both frugal and delicious. This chili recipe was born out my desire to use leftover BBQ pork, and, since we're big chili fans, it was a no-brainer. This BBQ Pork Chili has layers of flavors with the combination of the BBQ and the chili seasonings. The aroma that filled the house while the chili was slow cooking was outrageously good. Since the pork was already well-cooked, it was merely a matter of allowing the chili to simmer, so the flavors could marry. Therefore, I put it all in my slow cooker and let it cook several hours on low. Easy and delicious with no waste...I could not be happier.
