Sunday dinner . . .

One of my husband's favorite Campbell's soups is "Bean and Bacon."  I made homemade Bean and Bacon Chowder from a cookbook I have called "Is It Soup Yet?" by Dot Vartan, Among Friends, and Shelly Reeves Smith.  It called for canned potatoes which get puréed for thickening -- I just boiled a few potatoes -- I've never used canned potatoes, and predict that I never will.  I also used chunks of ham instead of the hot dogs the recipe called for.  It was a winner.

To go with it I made Absolute Mexican Cornbread which is my new favorite cornbread recipe.  Try it!
