Last week East Tennessee was hit with an ice storm that literally crippled our city for a couple of days. Dealing with snow is one thing, but ice is a totally different matter around here. Unlike our friends in the North, we’re just not equipped to handle that stuff — we’re accustomed to mild winters and hot, humid summers, after all! One thing I do know about snowy days is that they call for some good ‘ol comfort food like this Cheesy Chicken Vegetable Chowder. There’s nothing fancy about this soup–no special ingredients required. In fact, you probably have everything you need to make a batch in your pantry right now! This chowder is basic enough to get a little creative by simply substituting different veggies or by experimenting with a different cheese.
Thankfully, at our house we only lost power for a few hours during the ice storm. Some families were without power for several days of record-breaking low temperatures! It’s just a reminder that we shouldn’t take all our modern comforts and conveniences for granted. Join me in being thankful for loving families, warm homes, full bellies, and kind neighbors!
