Here’s what you eat when you pick up bushels and bushels of sweet Indiana corn!

Also, I was super busy getting everyone ready for today’s first day of PRE-K, thus I ate chocolate for dinner last night and figured it was finally time for some real food.

I have to tell you; I’m more nervous for my kids’ first day of school than I ever was for my own. In fact, I couldn’t wait to go back to class and socialize all damn day. AND rearrange my Trapper Keeper every chance I had. AND fill up my Lisa Frank folders!! EEEEP! SO FUN!

Best part was passing around notes with a “Circle YES if you want to be my boyfriend” message. I was quite the flirt.

…about them shrimp and corn…

I’m back on the easy meal train! Hell, I’m ALWAYS on the easy meal train. Ain’t nobody got time for anything complicated. These days, I’ve been making lots of Cheesy Bacon and Corn Stuffed Zucchini because, zucchini… and plenty of Cornbread Pancakes for brinner. I love ’em!

This chowder is kind of similar to my all time favorite Turkey Corn Chowder sans potatoes, but different enough that I felt compelled to share it with you so that you can also taste how good it is.

It’s SO delicious, especially finished off with a drizzle of milk or cream or half & half. You decide. And I just go wild for the delicious bites of shrimp and bacon and corn. For me? This is a MEAL. For my husband, it’s a pre-meal. I better have some ham-steaks and a big loaf of bread to go with it.

    I love corn chowder, having moved to Florida we do not have it as much as when we were in New England, but this recipe with the Shrimp is a nice change to the regular plain chowder. You have many more recipes that look very good. Great site.

  2. I made this last week and it was DELICIOUS!! It’s easy to prepare and I really liked that it was all in one pot.
    The bacon adds so much flavor. This will be a staple in my household!
