Creamy Chowder on a Chilly Autumn Day

28 Sep

by Amanda Halfpenny

My last guest blog post described a cool refreshing smoothie that I made on a hot day this summer and so I thought it would be highly appropriate if my next post be on a warm autumn dish.  I spent my summer eating mostly salads because I wanted to avoid turning on my stove or my oven in the suffocating heat! Now that fall weather is clearly here to stay, I have found myself fantasizing about warm creamy comfort food. Although other librarians on this blog have already posted their suggestions for yummy soups, in the autumn, you can really never eat too much soup so when I saw this recipe for a Broccoli, Red Pepper, and Cheddar chowder posted on a friend’s Facebook page, I knew I had to try making it myself! Since today was my first autumn day wearing gloves (it was extremely chilly and rainy in New Brunswick today), it was so much fun to make this creamy chowder that succeeded in filling my apartment with a cozy warmth and flavourful smell.

You might also note in the picture that I am reading (Heat Wave by Richard Castle) while enjoying my meal. With delicious chowder and great reads who cares if the autumn weather outside is chilly? Happy eating and reading!

    I must say I love that you’re reading Heat Wave. And I can’t wait to try this chowder. It looks positively delish!
