Inspiration can come from anywhere. Often I see somethimg on a cooking show or in a magazine and it will remind me of something my mother made, or give me an idea of how to make somethimg similar at low cost.

Shrimp Chowder

2cups total of onion, celery carrot and red peppers.
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
2cups milk
1/2 pound shrimp ( cooked) and cleaned. (if large, cut I'm half)
2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
1cup vegetable broth
1cup corn.

In pan, sauté veggies In butter until soft. Stir I'm flour and gradually add milk to make a sauce.

Add potatoes, broth and corn and cook until potatoes are soft. ( the smaller the dice for the potatoes, the quicker they will cook. Duh! )

Add shrimp and heat for ten minutes or until it is heated through.


2celery ribs, sliced
1/2 cup chopped onion
16 ounces of split peas


1/2 pound sausage, cooked and defatted

1 cup carrots, sliced.
2potatoes, peeled and cubed

Parsley, basil, salt and pepper

in a soup pot, Cook celery and onion in olive oil until tender.
Put peas in pot with 1.5 quarts water. Reduce heat and simmer 25 minutes.

Stir in remaining ingredients and 3 cups water. Cook an additional 30 minutes until peas and veggies are tender.
