~ New Years Eve Shrimp Chowder ~ Cass's

Cassie *


This New Years all but my daughter wanted shrimp. So, I decided to make a chowder ( my recipe ) for starters and we'll have scampi later.
I'm making my daughter a turkey wedgie sandwich as she loves them. Her loss as this soup was awesome! So comforting and so easy!

Happy New Year!
