Chicken Chowder with Chipotle




Happy Tuesday!  How was your long weekend?  Did you do anything fun?  Well it's official, you can wear white now - the sandals, the shorts, capris, etc.  But remember you only have until Labor Day!  At least that is what I was told growing up and to be honest I do follow that "rule"  It's ingrained in the brain - I might be dating myself - ha!

While we had fun this weekend... we haven't seen a peek of sun since Friday.  I really hope that is not a sign of what we can expect this summer.  So today when I was planning dinner, I was just in a soup mood and found this recipe full of veggies, chicken and kicked up a notch with chipotle chiles.  It really hit the spot and with a side of cornbread, the meal was complete.

Have a great week!!  Send me some sun!
