Friday Recipe: Potato Corn Chowder

Happy October! It's really Fall now and it's starting to chill out (yes, that is my own made up phrase for 'cooling off'). Fall to me means comfort food. I really like crockpot recipes that I can come home to on a week night or start on a Saturday morning. I especially love soups!

What You'll Need:
1 16 oz package of frozen corn
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspon of dried oregano
1 /12 lbs red potatoes
1 teaspoon of dried thyme
6 cups of chicken stock
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour
2 tablespoons of unsalted butter
1/4 cup of heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
What You'll Need to Do:
Place potatoes and corn into a slow cooker.
Stir in flour and gently toss to combine.
Stir in chicken stock, thyme, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste.
Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high heat for 3-4 hours.
Stir in butter and heavy cream.
Serve immediately.

Monday Madness Link Up 9.28.15

Another Monday is upon us.

I wish I had something fun to share from my weekend, but I spent it lounging and doing multiple chores. My kitchen and master bath got good scrubs and it makes the house so much better!

Scout and I were on our on this weekend. Nick's left for his yearly guys only 4-wheeling trip on Thursday morning. The little guy (Scout) decided to kill a rabbit on Friday morning. So there I am at 7:15 on Friday morning in my scrubs in the back yard running around, yelling at Scout to stop and leave it, and then I'm screaming because this near lifeless rabbit is flopping at my feet. I'm sure the neighbors loved it. The icing on the cake is that Scout did it again on Saturday morning. I was able to get him way before he went in for the kill this time. Not cool.

My little killer.

Friday night I went out with my BFF from my MA program. It was great to grab dinner and drinks!

I feel like I've finally turned the corner and have gotten over the cold I had. I'm feeling so much better!

I painted my nails by favorite color - Ballet Slippers (Essie). And that was my weekend...

What's Hap'pinning' Wednesday: Fall Fashion

Here is Michigan it's c-o-l-d in the Fall, and I'm always looking for fashionable yet warm clothes every season. Pinterest has been a great inspiration this year and has helped me to shop for practical, yet stylish clothing. 

(Linking up with Jenn and Jessi today for What's Hap'pnning' Wednesday.)
