Winter Vegetable Chowder

Mmmm, I found this recipe in the March Good Housekeeping magazine and shared it with my Mom. She made it last week and it was yummy, so I made it today, mmmm. If you want to see the original recipe without my modifications you can find it here.

I chopped the leeks and celery and put the parsnips in the food processor. Anything I don’t like in chunks (like carrots) ends up in the food processor.

All mixed together getting soft in the pot:

Cut-up butternut squash and potatoes (the store didn’t have red potatoes so I used Yukon Gold, and I keep the skins on because that’s where the nutrition is):

Mmmm, leeks, celery & parsnips are soft:

And while this was cooking, I decided to make chocolate pudding for dinner:

The powder from the box:

The soy milk mixed in and now for the stirring and waiting for the boiling:

Stirring and waiting. . .

I actually washed up the dishes while waiting for this to boil. I don’t stir it the whole time! Dishes were done and still no boiling. So I decided to photograph the bowls I use for the pudding. I couldn’t get a good photo of the bowls themselves, except for the bottom. They’re some old Hall bowls I bought at a flea market when I was collecting Hall china.

Finally! It’s boiling!

Mmmm, I love Saturday night dinners!
