Cheesy Chowder ~ Incredibly Easy Cheesy Chowder Loaded with Carrots, Potatoes, Celery and Ham!
I think the point has been established that I am not afraid to try new recipes, in fact I would say that I thrive on trying new recipes. I usually have a notebook with ideas jotted down in it and literally carry this all over with me because one never knows when inspiration will hit.
With that being said I do not make new recipes every single meal. No way, no how. I have staples that I always turn to for meals. Now desserts that’s a bit of a different issue because I don’t make those every day so if I am going to make one it tends to be new unless it’s going somewhere to serve the public. Then I usually refrain from testing a new recipe out in case of failure. Yes, I have my fair share of failures people! I bet you are just shocked aren’t you?
My favorite thing is the look my husband gives me every single time I make a dinner. Then these words come flying out of his mouth, “Is this new”? I typically say no you’ve had this multiple times before and you liked it. I’m not leaving that last part up for question!
I’ve been working on redoing a lot of pictures from my old posts because let’s just say they are quite pathetic and unappetizing. I personally wouldn’t want to eat if I looked at it and I’m guessing you don’t either. Lately we’ve tackled French’s Crunchy Cheddar Onion Chicken, Ham, Cheese, Poppy Seed Sandwiches and Apple Pull Apart Bread. Every time I pull one of these redo recipes he always asks if it’s new. Every.Single.Time.
I’m trying to figure out if my meals are that forgettable or my husband doesn’t care what I feed him as long as it’s hot and ready when dinner comes around?
Now, if he asks about the Cheddar Chowder the next time I serve it I might have to giggle. The man didn’t get a single bite of this. Not one. He was off building something when I treated myself to this. Yes, myself. I put Miss K down for a nap, enjoyed some quiet time in the kitchen and treated myself to a bowl of soup alone. Sometimes as a mom you need this solace.
