It is so interesting how our palates begin to change as the temperature
drops and the evenings get longer. We begin to crave comfort foods…
warm breads, simmering soups, and oven-baked favorites.
This Fabulous Shrimp Corn Chowder is one you are going to love.
It is definitely perfect to take to any friend or family, with a fresh
loaf of bread, or to serve at an Autumn Gathering with the rest of
the recipes from this chapter in volume five.
Enjoy the season…soups on!
