Dinner Diaries: Corn Chowder

Southern Comfort Food!  No matter what part of the country you live in, this is a phrase EVERYONE loves to hear right?  With frigid temperatures attacking the east coast.  Snow shutting down North Carolina two weeks in a row and spring playing hide and go seek, comfort is definitely at the forefront of my mind.  Of course you know I am not a food blogger by any means, but I did decide last week that I would incorporate more things that I love on my blog and cooking is one of them.  Actually to be a bit more up front, I love to entertain, so trying new dishes for the purpose of entertaining is my true love.

Today I made homemade corn chowder and it was scrumptious!  A few years ago I ate some chowder from a restaurant here in the Triangle that had amazing flavor.  I remember the first time I ate it, I thought wow!  It was so good that I had to get a second cup, but not without thinking, boy is this expensive.  At that point I decided that I would just make my own and here we are some 72 months later ready to dig in.

Fresh Corn (I used frozen)
Potatoes (I used Yukon Gold)
Yellow Onion
Minced Garlic
Salt, Pepper, and Thyme
Heavy Whipping Cream
