Corn Chowder (long awaited)

Corn Chowder

I made this corn chowder twice the week of the great blizzard of 2011.  It was so good, comforting and just yummy.  With the weather warming up and the snow melting, I know I am a little late.  I’ve been super busy–which is a good thing for Ste Martaen.  I have a to-do list a mile long and I purposely didn’t take the 4 year old to pre-k today so that I could accomplish writing to you at the very least.

  • 1/2 stick of vegan margarine
