“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

*katie's sexy corn chowder recipe* by popular request pffft

see what happens when you go on hiatus, leighleigh???
peeps start asking *moi* ...the not-so-domestiKATEd-goddess... for RECIPES...

this one is originally clare's (she makes it vegetarian: so no bacon, hooray hay) and she got it from the playcentre cookbook. i can make it in half an hour from go to woah. so it's perfect for friday night, or sunday night, or any night lol
most importantly, it's true comfort food, cos it makes EVERYBODEE's tummies happy.

enough pre-amble, get that apron on!!!

CORN CHOWDER for seven peeps, plus a big bowl left over for hubby's lunch:
into pressure cooker fire a chopped onion and saut
é in a little olive oil/butter for a few mins, turn off the heat and add chopped celery, leeks, a couple of grated carrots, two tins (drained) plain corn kernels, half a bag of diced poh-tay-toes, some chopped bacon... and boiling water to the top of the veggies.
whang the lid on, and bring to the boil. when it squeals (let it go lol) turn down the heat and cook for ten to fifteen minutes (or if you are using a *normal* pot, cook until veggies are al dente.)

while the pressure cooker is doing its thang, make a cheese sauce from butter, flour, milk and grated cheese... you know the drill, make a roux first and whisk the heck out of it on a medium heat as you add the milk, until you get a velvety consistency.
add cheese sauce to soup, ladle into bowls and eat five bowl fulls by yourself. or if you have little voices in your head, just eat two bowl fulls, and then persuade hubby to jump in The Sardine Tin and take you and the kiddos on a Late Night Surprise Outing Through The Maccas Drive Thru where you get to scoff a caramel sundae too.
now practise spelling "wagon"
all the way home X

??Half a bag of tatters?? - What kind of bag? 3kg? 4 kg? 10kg?
I still think I'd like it better if you made it. And since F is about to be off for six whole, entire, gigantically long weeks, I fail to see how you can't make a trip south. Te Papas gonna have a whale thing. Someone likes whales in your house surely?? xxxx
