Two Potato Chowder

My step mom made this soup for us last year when we were visiting. It’s very tasty and filling. And, it’s easy to whip up! Don’t forget the shredded cheese and bacon to sprinkle on top of the soup when you serve it. This will warm you up to the core on these cold and nasty days we’ve been having!

    Great picture! I’ve been thinking that this would be great for Shakespear in the Park. Cool and refreshing!

    I love Panzanella, but haven’t had Ina’s version yet (Tyler’s is delish!) – perfect recipe for summertime.
