Comfort Food

While recovering from yesterday's surgery, I decided to make something comfy to eat. Soup is always a good option for recuperation.

I had a bag of Trader Joe's incredible white corn in the freezer (that stuff is the sweetest, best tasting corn you've ever eaten) so I headed in a corn chowder direction.

Saute an onion in butter, add a bit of flour, cumin, red chili, add boiling vegetable broth, the corn, diced potato, and some half-and-half.

I realized I didn't have a potato, so jumbo pasta shells would have to do. And they did very nicely. Even better, in fact.

Here it is. Southwestern Corn Chowder topped with homemade bread & butter pickled jalapenos.

I'm not the best at making soup or chowder -- it's hit or miss with me -- but I could open a restaurant with this stuff.

I had Vicodin for dessert.
