Merry Christmas from the Geri's!!!!

"It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?”
A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

 We had lunch again today, the Geri's and I.  We stayed in at my house eating corn chowder, salad, artichoke dip and lots of sweets.  The food is always good when we get together but the talk is even better!!! In the words of Ninny Threadgoode from  Fried Green Tomatoes ,"I found out what the secret to life is: friends. Best friends".

So Merry Christmas from the Geri's!!!! (and below is a great recipe for easy, easy , easy corn chowder)


2 cans cream of potato soup
2 cans cream of corn
2 cups milk
bacon bits (I use the ones you find by the salad fixings
1/2 bag of frozen potatoes o'brien
sprinkle of parsley flakes (for color)
 shredded cheese
sour cream

Mix all the ingredients except the cheese and sour cream in a crock pot.  Cook for 2 1/2 hours on low.  Serve with cheese and sour cream and extra bacon bits.  Also serve with fresh bread or corn bread.  You are then good to go!!

Merry Christmas to all, Friends!!!!!
