Welcome to “Soupy Tuesday!” For those of you that are new to my blog…For the next few months I will be sharing a recipe for a delicious easy soup. As the days get colder, everyone enjoys a hot bowl of soup. We here on the East Coast had a Blizzard this passed weekend. I ended up with about 27 inches of snow with the drifts on Long Island. It took a few days to clear out. So this soup or any soup for that matter is like a welcoming friend. Warm and comforting…If you would like to see a special recipe for soup or have one that you want to share just email me at this address (angellite13(at)optimum(dot)net) or post something in the comments below. I will be happy to give you a shout out. Hope this keeps you warm and cozy for the next few months…
******* I just want to "thank" all of you who have been sending well wishes and prayers to my mom who is in a rehab center for her back. She has been there since the beginning of December and her condition is getting better with her PT and OT, but she had a set back the weekend of the January 16th and was taken to the hospital for a blood transfusion. She is now back at the rehab and is trying to regain her strength. It is very slow going and my family thank you for your continuing prayers and thoughts. Also want to let you know that I will be only posting on “Soupy Tuesday” for a while. Thank you dear family and dear friends.**********
The soup that I would love to share with you today is called “Crab, Shrimp and Corn Chowder” Just as good as the satisfying chowders you find in restaurants along the New England coast, this creamy chowder can easily be made at home in less than an hour. Why not whip some up right now?
“Crab, Shrimp, and Corn Chowder Soup”
Serves: 6; 1 3/4 cups each
4 slices bacon
1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups Chicken Broth homemade or cans
2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
7 red potatoes or fingerling potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 container (8 ounces) pasteurized refrigerated lump crabmeat
12 small shrimp, cooked, and deveined
1/2 cup heavy cream
Cook the bacon in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove the bacon from the saucepan and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings from the saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and garlic to the saucepan and cook until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir the broth, seafood seasoning, potatoes, and corn in the saucepan. Heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the crabmeat and shrimp, plus add heavy cream and cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Divide the chowder among 6 bowls. Top each with about 1 tablespoon bacon. Serve with a big green salad and a chunk of crusty bread…to get up every bit…Enjoy!
*****Ingredient Note: If you can't find sweet onions, regular white or yellow onions will work in this recipe.
