Winter Wednesday Corn Chowder

Hi everyone.  I am so sorry this post is going up so late in the day.  By now you have probably picked up the kiddos from school, washed out those lunch containers and are already thinking about tomorrow's lunch.  Perfect!

Last night we had our second snow of the year - and I think this one is sticking around.  We were lucky enough that our first big storm thawed within a few days, but this one doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.  *sigh*  So I packed something to warm my DH from the inside out for his lunch today:

Today's lunch includes a delicious leftover Greek Chicken breast from last night.  You will notice I popped it in a cute little glass pyrex dish to make it simple and easy for DH to lift it out and microwave it if need be.  Carrot sticks, yogurt & granola (sent in a small container separately so the granola doesn't get soggy) an apple, a KoolAid Jammer and some cold pasta salad.  My pasta salad is SUPER easy to make.  I just cook up the pasta, or use leftovers; cut up whichever veggies I want in it - usually carrots, peppers, a few baby tomatoes - and toss it in some Kraft Greek Feta and Oregano dressing.  Voila!  It is delicious and I get a ton of compliments on it.  Now all my friends will know my secret!  lol
I also sent a thermos with some Corn Chowder I whipped up last night when it started to snow.  It is a super easy and very delicious recipe and I thought it would help keep DH's toes warm.

Have a great Remembrance Day to my fellow Canadians, and a good Veterans day to my US friends tomorrow.  Take a few moments to remember those who have done so much for us and given us the freedom and liberty we enjoy and sometimes take for granted!
