Corn Chowder

Made something new yesterday that J and I both liked. My version of corn chowder.

Corn Chowder

1 stalk of celery, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
2-3tbs butter
1.5tbs flour
dried onion flakes

saute the carrots and celery and onion in the butter for a few minutes on medium heat, then add the flour, stir constantly for a couple more minutes, then add:

32oz chicken stock
2 cans whole kernel corn-drained
1can cream corn
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1tsp bacon grease for flavor (optional)
small dash dill, red pepper, salt, and garlic

allow to boil until veggies are soft. then add

about 1/4 to 1/3c half and half, or more depending on how creamy you want it
1/2c shredded cheddar cheese
about 6oz precooked bacon bits (or cook your own, maybe 4-5 pieces)

allow to cook for 5-10 more minutes, until cheese is melted
