There's always an excuse to leave the dishes, dusting, scrubbing and especially yard work for later. My favorite excuses are sewing, reading, cooking, and now decorating my new house with custom projects. Getting away from home in our new camper is also a great excuse -- although that's just another house to clean! Here's what's going on with me and my favorite hobbies.

Potato, Broccoli, Corn Chowder
I made some really tasty soup. I boiled 5 potatoes, chopped in cubes. I sauteed onions & garlic and made a white sauce (flour, vegetable stock, milk, salt & pepper), adding 1/2 cup sour cream, 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce, 1 tsp. chili powder, 1 Tbsp. tomato paste, a sprinkle of hot sauce and some cayenne pepper. After that thickens, add 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese, 1/2 c. parmesan cheese, the boiled potatoes, about 2 cups of chopped broccoli (I used frozen that I cooked in the potato water) and 1 cup of frozen corn. Add more milk or vegetable stock if it's too thick. We liked it!
