Simple and exciting

This looks like a simple and exciting menu. I think this will be served this Friday when my friends come over. I am thinking of adding a few drops of hot sauce to add to the taste of the shrimp. I have never been disappointed by any recipe from VeryBestBaking.

My family doesn't like peppers so we used diced celery and carrots. Everyone liked the flavors. Will make it again.

Very simple yet tasty

I made this on a cold Winter day when I wanted something simple yet tasty. It goes well with a side salad or chopped up fruit for a complete meal. I did add 1 bay leaf, 1/4 tsp. Marjoram, and a dash or two of hot sauce along with a little pepper and salt. I appreciate meals that are quick, simple, easy to make, and tasy like this!

For my first time ever making chowder, I found this meal very easy and very delicious. This recipe is very forgiving for substitutions on the various corns and even adding your own ingredients. I recomend trying this dish out.
