How Can I Not Blog??

I just can't not blog. My time to travel around and view other people's blogs may suffer, but I just can't not blog!

Today I'm not blogging about quilting...I'm blogging about yummy things cooking in my crock pot!

I'm making chicken corn chowder for dinner tonight. Here's the recipe:

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast, chopped
1 onion, choppped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 carrots, sliced
2 ribs of celery, sliced
2 potatoes, diced
1 teaspoon all seasoning herbs
1 can creamed corn
1 can corn
3 cups chicken broth
1/3 cup chopped Italian Parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Put all ingredients, except parsley, salt and pepper in crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours. Add seasonings 1/2 hour before serving.


  1. The cherry trees are just gorgeous right now, your house must smell so good with that all that yumminess cooking away! Those guys are sure going to miss you when you're gone.

  2. I love corn chowder. Thanks for the recipe!

    My daughter (in NJ) was just talking to me about the cherry blossoms at Branch Brook Park near her, one of the largest displays in the world. I'm sorry I'm going to miss it this year. But there's lots of wonderful blooming stuff to see here. In particular I can't get over the spectacular displays of crape myrtle! I'd never seen anything like it before last summer.

  3. What a pretty view; it must make your walk to the gym very pleasant. I love it when the blossom appears here in the UK, though the snow and windstorms we had this year ruined much of it. I've never made corn chowder, but your recipe sounds very tasty.

  4. Oh Bonnie can I come for dinner? I LOVE corn chowder and had it all the time as a child but now my dh hates corn and I just can't make a big recipe like that for just me.
    Your walk seems very restful, we still have a bit of snow, it's been a hard winter, but the rhubarb are poking through. Does that count? :)
    Started the Orange crush today. So glad it's 2" stips,lol... what fun.

  5. Sounds like a good meal to me Bonnie. I smiled when I read your post. I have tried more than once to NOT blog any more since it seems to occupy my time so fully, but then I am like you, I just can't NOT blog.

  6. M-m-m-m-m Corn Chowder. What time is supper? Spring is (one of) my favorite time of year, because of the beautiful flowering trees.

  7. Those trees just shout SPRING!!!

  8. Bonnie, thanks for the slow cooker recipe!!! I will check to make sure I have everything on hand if not add to the grocery list and try it soon. :) It sounds yummy!

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  9. You know what? You can sure tell that road has not seen the snow and ice our roads have had this year! they are all like the rocky mountains!

  10. I love those trees....just a gorgeous place you moved to!

    I'm on my way over for dinner!!! lol...

  11. Blooming trees and green grass make me so homesick for southern Virginia! Thanks for sharing!
