Krista’s Boredom Busters
Hello, I thought this week I would offer comfort food. Who likes a good chowder on a cold night? I love not only eating this but making it for my family as it is so simple and does not cost much to make.
Some items I serve my chowder is with crackers or bread and butter. What would you serve your chowder with or what would you add to it?
