Chowder time

I love winter! I love hot soup on a cold day, it warms the insides up.
Chowder- this one is potato

Dice one onion and saute in olive oil.
Add 6 to 8 peeled and cubed potatoes, I use Yukon gold, or russet.
Cover with water, add salt and pepper, use common sense for amount.
Place 1 bay leaf in with the potatoes and simmer until potatoes are almost tender.
Add one can of corn ( I use frozen).
Mix 1/4 c of a.p. flour to 1 1/2 c milk mix well add to pot.
Simmer until potatoes are done.
Salt and pepper to taste. :)

I wish I had better directions, but I usually cook by taste, rather than follow a recipe.

We top the chowder off with some fried bacon
