Nana's Corn Chowder

Vanessa "Nikita" Milare


This is 1 of the first soups & stew like dishes my mother thought me. It's called "Nana's Chowder" cause "Nana" is what my niece & nephew use to call my mom their grandmother. I know it's not really a holiday meal but I make this every year for Thanksgiving. My niece & nephew don't know it's not our Thanksgiving dinner with out this dish on the table. So I make it every year...
