Wheelie Wednesday - Lobster Chowder

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn.
The temps are getting cooler here - more like autumn - and mom and I decided to make a big pot of Lobster Chowder!
We melted a half stick of butter and added 3 big chunked up potatoes - sprinkled in bacon salt and celery salt and onion powder and salt and pepper.
Then we added 16 ounces of corn and let everything cook and get kind of soft.
Then we added water till our pot was about two-thirds full and dropped in 3 chicken bouillon cubes.  It's beginning to boil and it smells yummy!  We'll let it cook for about 1/2 hour till the potatoes are pretty much done.
I'll add the wine, mom - about 1/4 of a cup.
Time to add almost the whole quart of light cream  and 10 ounces of chopped lobster meat.
We heat everything just until it's hot (don't boil)!
I can't wait to taste it!
Serve with a chive garnish and make sure you have plenty of oysterette crackers!
See you all next Wednesday!

Sounds great, but when does the lobster go into the pot? Muzzer says she might have to use crab because it is easier to find, do you think that will work?


Gus said...

oops, never mind, found the lobster!

Mack said...

I suspect there are two very happy Dales where you live Autumn! That chowda looks awesome!

Oh Autumn: we are both just drooling and creating a mess of the puter screen - oh dear, that sounds so yummalicious. (Of course that's really Mom drooling! - She misses lobster so much!) Thanks for giving us the recipe though - maybe we can make it with Dungeness Crab?

Sue, you are so inspiring!!! I think I will make a soup with lobster meat next Nonday. I make a big pot of soup every week so there is always something healthy to eat any time of the day or night. Usually it has no meat in it b/c when we can put what ever we want in it. But mext Nonday there will be Lobster in my soup!!
Thank you!!
XXOO, Fern

When is your cookbook coming out Maggie? You should REALLY think about doing one!

Your Mitch looks like STINKY with that wide eye, open mouf cathing shot, expect STINKY shows more teeth being the landshark.
