Chicken, Corn and Potato Chowder

by aimee @ shugarysweets on October 21, 2011

It is cold here in Ohio. Not wintry cold. Just *chilled to the bone because I refuse to turn on the heat* cold. Am I the only one that sets a date in my head as when it’s too soon to turn heat on? Same with air conditioning. Sorry, but it won’t go on before the kids get out for summer break in my house.

This drives my husband crazy. After all, “I work hard and we can afford it, why do you refuse to use it?”

Honestly, I don’t know. I have no reason what so ever, except to say, it’s only October. That’s my defense. Go put on a hoodie, slippers and wrap a blanket around yourself. And eat a bowl of this chowder. You’ll feel better.

Ha ha! Same with me! My husband and I have a silent contest to see who turns the heat or AC on first. still no heat turned on here in WI. Using the gas fireplace though! Thanks for the recipe, was thinking of a good soup to make tonight.

I’m the same way. We’re still sleeping with our bedroom window open and it was 45 when we woke up this morning. Outside, not in the house. The house was 65 I think. Cold but not FREEZING.

We usually try to make it to the first of Nov before turning on the heat. I have to admit we caved and turned it on low last night…when the house is 60*…it’s time! I love how easy this recipe sounds. Just toss it all in the crock pot:-)

I am so glad to hear that I am not the only person who puts off turning on the Furnace (or AC) as long as possible. In the past it was because I was afraid our old unit would not work and we’d have to call in a repairman. Now with our new unit, I don’t have to worry and it is so much more efficient. So it is not even about saving money, I just put it off as long as possible. The other day it was down in the 20s, today it was mid 70s. I am going to hold out until is consistently cold.

Also, as soon as it is good and cold, I am definitely trying this recipe!!

I loved the sweetness of the corn and chunkiness of the chicken and potatoes. We’re already in the process of getting someone to do our chimney repairs after months of waiting it out.

Aimee,
Ha! I do the same thing and my hubby complains too. I just don’t see a need for heat especially unless it’s dropping below 65 in my house (I love a cold house) and my hubby goes around in a sweatshirt and shivers in the winter, lol.

I love my crock pot too but haven’t made any soup in it before. I’m definitely going to make this delicious soup soon! Thanks for sharing :)
Michelle
