Monday, September 14, 2020
A favorite fall chowder loaded with cheddar cheese, bacon, corn and potatoes. A very hearty and filling soup.

I've been waiting for a cool day to make Cheddar Bacon Corn and Potato Chowder soup for weeks now.

It's been on the I need make recipes for the blog list but it's just been too hot and the weather's been far too nice to heat up the house so the corn kept going out to the grill and I've been waiting for a drop in temperature.

This barely ever happens in Washington just for the record, we almost always have a few cool days even in August.

So yesterday the temperature all of a sudden dropped to the mid 60's from the mid 80's the day before   and I knew my craving for Cheddar Bacon Corn and Potato Chowder was going to be fixed.

I instantly felt the need for all things soups, stew, apples, pumpkin, sweaters and boots, it hit me like a ton of bricks.

I don't know if it's my bodies way of preparing me for the next few months of rain and gloom or it's just some crazy subliminal thing that happens.

This soup has everything that makes me love the fall with it's cheddary, velvety texture, smokey baconliciousness (I know it's not a word, spell checks yelling at me at this very moment but I like the sound baconliciousness), tons of locally grown fresh corn and creamy potatoes.

It's everything in a bowl of chowder I need! 

Fried Diced Bacon in a stainless steel pot.

To make the soup you need to fry 6 slices of chopped bacon until crispy. Remove bacon to a paper towel and set aside.
