Vegetable Chowder

Its been awhile since I've posted, but just haven't had anything jazz me enough lately to where I felt like I needed to share. Lazy, I suppose. :) Here's what was for dinner tonight though! Every time I make this, I'm amazed at how good it is for being so simple. You can play around with the veggies and try different cheeses...

Vegetable Chowder
4 c diced potatoes

1 can corn (drained)

1 c diced carrots

1 c diced celery

1/2 c chopped onion

3 tsp salt

Cover all the above with water, and boil for 15 minutes (or until veggies are soft). Drain off water. Pour sauce into veggies, and mix, heating thoroughly.


1/2 c butter or margarine

1/4 c flour

2 c milk

1 c shredded cheese

Melt butter in pan, wisk (well!) in flour when butter is bubbly, slowly pour in milk, continually wisking. Bring to just bubbly again, and add cheese to melt.
