Another Corn Cheddar Chowder & Criytibs

The corn chowder was very good! We gave it a 9 out of 10!

I did a 1/3 of the recipe b/c I kept reading everyone's comments on how it made a lot and I didn't want to be eating everyday for a week no matter how good it is! Mine wasn't as creamy as some have suggested but I might have gotten some of the 1/3ing (word??:)) wrong but it was good none the less.

Here is what I used if anyone else wants to do a 1/3...
2c onion, 4c chicken stock, 2c potatoes (I used red also), 3.5c corn (I think next time I'll only use 3c), 2/3c 1/2&1/2, 1.5tbsp butter, 2/3tsp salt, <1/4c flour, eyeballed pepper!
I left out the tumeric b/c I couldn't bring myself to spend $5 on a small container of it! So I'm not sure what I missed out on flavor wise but it was still good.
Croutons -
These were good...nothing special but good. They may have been better if they didn't get so brown but my oven wasn't even preheated and I put them in for 17 min (which she states 15-20) so I thought I'd be good but no so! I also did the olive oil mix like I would garlic bread and cooked the bread like 5 min and that tasted good too...not sure if it was better than our usual but it was good.

BEFORE AFTER - just a little well done!

Not sure how my croutons came out to be whatever that word is! But I'm not sure how to fix it!

LOL - I was wondering what "criytibs" were! Instead of "new post", click on "edit post" - fix the title, then re-post it. Hope that helps!
