Corn-Potato Chowder

My favorite time of the year is here! I love all the soups and chowders to make you feel warm and cozy inside! (Although Arizona is an exception!) They are still fun to eat! Here is one of my favorite recipes:

1/3 c. butter, opt.

2 1/4 c. water

4 c. potatoes, cut up

2/3 c. celery, cut up

3 green onions, sliced

Cook together, simmer 20 minutes.

Make white sauce:

6 T. butter

6 T. flour

2 1/2 c. milk

1 1/2 tsp. dill weed

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. pepper

Add to cooked vegetables and water. Add 16 oz. can corn and 2 c. grated cheese. Heat through. Enjoy!

I don't know about you, but I always crave apples and caramel in October! I thought I would share a super simple, delicious recipe from my Aunt Debbie.

1 cup sugar

1 can condensed milk (Sego brand is best!)

1 cube butter

Boil slowly until desired thickness.

You can use as an ice cream topping and of course for apple dipping! Enjoy!
