Good morning blogging world. I have visited a few of you this morning and had to read several post since I spent time in books last week.

We here in Tennessee are beginning to have those wonderful cool mornings and nights. Some might say cold but I say WONDERFUL. I think 40-60 weather is just perfect. Do any of you know where this happen year round?

I will share a soup recipe today as this is the beginnings of soup weather. Mimi and I try to make soup either Wednesday or Thursday night. Most usually it happens on the later.

Creamy Chicken-Vegetable Chowder

Cook three chicken breast with onion, celery, marjoram, basil, thyme with enough water to cover the chicken about an inch or two. It depends on how much broth you wish to use. Remove the chicken and cool so it will be easy to chop into small pieces. Strain broth to use in the soup.
1- 10 oz can cream of potato soup undiluted
1-10 oz can cream of chicken soup undiluted
1-11 oz can of Mexican style corn, undiluted
1- 4 oz jar sliced mushrooms undiluted
1 1/2 cups of milk
1 cup of chicken broth or more if you like
1 4oz can chopped green chilies, do not drain
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Garnish with sliced green onions

Combine the chopped chicken and the other ingredients in a large dutch oven. Stirring well using medium heat until it is thoroughly heated. Remove from heat and stir in the cheese stirring until it melts. Serve immediately. Yields nine cups.

I will to apologize to those who tried the Hominy Casserole as I was not precise and state to drain the hominy. Please add this to your recipe.

The kitty justice is I will try to be more precise in future sharing.

Have a news flash! I shared your recipe with a friend of mine who is a vegan and we came to the conclusion that you needed to drain the hominy and she not only fixed it but had me over for a taste.....ummmm.
I like the sounds of this soup too so will have to print it out and give it a try:)

Yes, I know where the weather averages in the 50’s most years. But, you have to be able to take 10 feet of rain a year with those cooler temps. But, I’d take that any day over the heat of much of the lower 48 states.

A friend was visiting Sitka last week from Austin Texas. He said they had over 50 days of temperatures in the triple digits. Now, that would kill me so I’ll stick to the cool temps with rainy any day over that kind of relenting heat.

Dear Dianne ~~ Recipe looks yummy though our soup season is over. I enjoyed seeing the photos of the raked hay and guess it has been baled by now. John's little dogs are enjoying their stay as far as I know and so am I.
Take great care, Love, Merle.

We do chili at least once a month around here this time of year. I try different things. Need to let me know how you make your chilli. Peace

oops. I am glad she knew to drain it. I got a call from one of my buddies and she did not and then I realized that I had left that out. Glad you enjoyed it. Peace

I guess I need to buy a house in Sitka. But I need a tin roof to hear all that rain. Peace

I will have to post a few salad recipe for y'all. Last night on our public television station they had an hour long show on all the different parrots in the down under. I enjoyed it immensely. Peace

I hope you enjoy it as it is one of my favorite chowders. I have a habit of trying recipes and then plan what I will do next time to improve it and 99.9 per cent of the time I hit a home run. Peace
