It’s snowing right now. As I type this I am looking out the window at possibly bigger flakes of chunky wet snow than we had all winter. It looks cold. And grey. And wet. And it’s cold in my bones. I knew when it was 30C in March that it was too good to be true. The Boy and I even discussed it – the possibility for snow to come. Turns out it really doesn’t matter that I told myself to expect it. I’m still bitter. It’s the end of April. I’ve started walking to work. I’m done with winter.
So I made soup. Corn Chowder – specifically. And it was delish. Even the Boy agreed. From Vegan Cooking for Carnivores, with a little added Meaghan tweaking. I don’t know what Old Bay Seasoning is, but I know what spices are on my fridge – so I added some of those.
Chowder is just the thing on a snowy evening in April. The heart can’t take much more of this – but soup helps.
Onion, celery, garlic, a bit of flour. Stir. Add veggie broth. Spices – I used some Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Thyme, Cayenne, Bay Leaf, Red Pepper flakes, salt and Pepper. Corn, simmer, puree half. Add Potatoes, simmer, eat.
