Pinterest tried and true

Ok ya'll I'm on a roll. I've really been trying to step out of my comfort zone and try some new recipes. Tonight I made shrimp corn chowder or chow'da if you will.
What's odd about me and shrimp is I usually am not a huge fan of shrimp.
However, since I've been pregnant I've started to enjoy shrimp and Tuna fish.
I hadn't had a tuna fish sandwich in 20 years. But now, I've had a few during this pregnancy.
So anyways back to the chow'da.
Pretty simple recipe, super yummy and on a cold Colorado evening joined with bread and salad it was a great meal!!
Try it!!!

The only things we would have changed was less corn. I used two cans of corn vs ears of corn.
Also, Ev suggested I add potatoes to it too, so that I did for our left overs tomorrow.
Other than those changes it was really a good meal, that I would def make again.


  1. Oh wow this looks so yummy! I've tried making a few pinterest recipes, some of them good and some not so good. Haha! It's always good to hear from someone who has already tried it.

    Anyway, thanks for commenting on my blog! I just did some reading up in your about me section and am happy to hear you are pregnant again! I can totally relate to the fat feeling. hahaha! I always had to tell myself it was for a good cause too, and it totally was!

  2. Thanks Frills4Thrills! Pinterest is so hit or miss i'm trying to get better about sharing my successes with others.
