A recipe post...yay!
(And a few Montana pictures)
I got this from Pinterest.
The link led to only a picture, no credit.
I can't wait to make it for the next poker game or club meeting!

Easy Corn Chowder

These are my pictures.
I made this last night. It's still a little chilly some days here. It was only in the 40s yesterday and rainy all day. I thought this would be a good meal for a chilly evening, and it was. We thought it was a little bland, but sometimes bland is good! I added three little pats of butter (I couldn't help it!). I bet it will be even better tonight as leftovers. It's so EASY and FAST! Bacon, onion, and four cans...what could be easier?
Easy Corn Chowder
5 pieces of bacon, fried and crumbled
1 onion, chopped
1 can creamed corn
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can diced new potatoes, drained
1 can evaporated milk
salt & pepper to taste
Three pats of butter (Live a little!)
1. Fry bacon and remove from pan to drain on a paper towel; set aside.
2. Saute the chopped onion in the bacon grease about 4-5 minutes until soft. (I removed a lot of the bacon grease and just left about a Tbsp in the pan to fry the onion.)
3. Place the onion, crumbled bacon, and rest of the ingredients into a large pot. Mix well and let it simmer for 10-15 minutes. Salt & pepper to taste. Serve.
A few pictures from my trip to Quinn's Hot Springs Resort in Montana...
It was a fun trip. I didn't enjoy the hot springs as much as I thought I would. Although it felt WONDERFUL, the water smelled like sewer something awful! It was the sulfur in the water. YUCK! I never got used to it and it bothered me. I hate to be a complainer, but I'm just telling you the truth. I would never go back for that reason. Some people there said some hot spring resorts don't have that smell. They must add something to the water to get rid of that smell, but I don't know.
One last thing...
The cake we served at the Mother's Day Tea last Friday.
The top layer was yellow and the bottom was chocolate.
It was a very large cake, but you can't tell that from this picture.
The tea was a success again this year.
Until next time...
