Farmhouse Crab & Corn Chowder

Is it me or are we sooo ready to be in the thick of fall. It’s officially just started but I’m ready to be loving and embracing all things fall every day and in every way. When it comes to favorite fall foods, chowder has got to be pretty close to the top of my list. There is nothing like a belly filling, roll me on the sofa, bowl of some good ol’ chowder at the end of a long work day. What’s good about a chowder, is you can make a big pot of it on the weekend and freeze portions of it to eat later in the week. I hope you enjoy this recipe all fall and winter long. You are gonna love it. After I made this, it quickly became a favorite in our home. This is also a good recipe for vegetarians because I use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
