I have a question for all you married/longterm relationship ladies, do your spouse’s love everything you make or do they act spoiled and sometimes turn their nose up at a home cooked meal?
My husband, for the most part, loves everything I make. Granted, I don’t try to force anything upon him that I know he despises, but when I make something amazing and the answer I get is “eh, not bad.”
I get angry.
This soup for example, has all of the delicious items to make a soup amazing. Cheese, check, carbs, check, turkey, check, so what’s the deal?
I sometimes think he is too spoiled by what is served regularly, that he expects more. Well, I don’t know what’s better than a creamy, warm, cheesy soup.
Potato corn chowder with cheddar + turkey
[ adapted from Whole foods ]
3 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
4 large russet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 1 inch cubes
6 cups turkey broth
2 cups frozen yellow corn
2/3 cup non-fat milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, plus more for topping
1 cup chopped turkey or chicken
crackers or crushed tortillas for topping
In a large pot, melt the butter over high heat, add the onions and saute for 5 minutes. Add the flour and whisk until all the flour has been blended. Add the broth and bring to boil, making sure to whisk frequently to keep flour clumps from forming. Once boiling, add the potatoes and turn heat down. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until potatoes are fork tender.
Slightly mash the potatoes and add the corn and milk. Cook for 5 minutes. Add the cheese and turkey, stir until cheese is completely melted. Serve hot topped with more cheese and your favourite fish-shaped crackers or crushed tortillas.
