Comfort Food ...

I like comfort food. A LOT. On a bad day I can down a bowl of macaroni-and-real-cheese like nobody's business.

Here's a recipe for Creamy Corn Chowder my mom used to make when I was growing up. I made it last night:

1/4 lb bacon
1 large onion, chopped
1 cup diced celery
2 tbsp butter
1 cup water
2 cans cream-style corn
2 cups milk
1 large can (14 1/2 oz) evaporated milk
1/4 tsp salt, dash of pepper

Dice bacon and saute about 15 minutes. Drain.
Discard extra fat and saute celery and onion in remaining fat and butter for approx. 10 minutes.
Add water and simmer for 5 minutes.
Stir in corn, milk & evaporated milk, bacon, salt & pepper.
Heat chowder just to boiling.

YUMMY! I'd have to throw some potatoes in there for a little bonus! :)

It is so good with potatoes in it, but I was trying to be all carb-friendly. Dumb.
