Chicken Chowder

IMG_1474

We’ve lucked out this winter in Wisconsin, and it hasn’t been TOO terribly cold. For me though, I’m a freeze baby. I think it’s cold all the time.  Having to get out of bed to go shovel off my car, or walking across the bridge to class makes me cold just thinking about it. Thats why soup is a winter staple. Having left overs is the best thing, because its so quick, and easy. The warm, goodness of holding the bowl, and practically scorching your mouth because you just want to get the warmth, and tastiness in you…mmmm.

Well this recipe is a spin off from my Mom. She came home from Florida last year, and while I was home visiting she insisted I make her a few batches of this soup she had at a friend’s. I usually do all the cooking when I come home, but I don’t mind. Her recipes was tasty, but there were a few things I wanted to add, and switch up for health, and taste benefits.
