A kitchen day

As the days creep toward fall, I get the cooking bug. So this morning, after I watered the flowers on the patio and picked a few tomatoes, I headed to the kitchen. First up: I have been craving potato soup. I have a recipe called The Best Potato Soup in the World. Grandiose claim, but they might be right. I whipped up a pot for my lunch and to stock the freezer: While the soup was simmering, I baked a couple of dozen devil's food cupcakes - portion control. After they were frosted (not heavily, I like cake but don't care for frosting), I packed them for the freezer.
And, during all of this, the bread maker was churning out dinner roll dough, which were baked after the cupcakes were done.
Then I got inspired to make corn chowder for supper. I know it looks a lot like the potato soup but trust me it's different.And tonight, after the kitchen is cleaned up (again!) I will make some tomato sauce with these beauties:The bad thing is, with all this cooking happening, my husband has a stomach bug and can't eat!

Gosh! Please send some my way! I don't know what I'm going to do for dinner! Even better you could come and cook for a few days. I'd buy the groceries!

Wow! That's a lot of cooking! Everything looks so good. The corn chowder made my mouth water! LOL Definitely different from potato soup. Now you've inspired me - think I'll go make some dinner rolls!

Hmmm, it all looks so good.. I love potato soup when the weather gets cooler. It's one of my favorite foods..I have never tried Corn chowder so I can't say if I like it or not. Your bread and cupcakes looked great. I'm going to have to get my bread maker out and start making some of that too. Girl, you are making me hungry! Hugs, Linda

Catsinger - I would be more than happy to share my recipe if you contact me by email. I suppose you'd like it; the food you talk about on your blog seems more highly seasoned than I make, but it's a good basic recipe. You could personalize it.
