{yuletide carols} The Soup is On!

. ... ... .. ... ... .... ... .. ... ... ... ... .. ... .. .. .. . .
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Brrr... it's a cold one.  And a little damp, too!
We've just finished caroling, Angels We Have Heard on High, yes! - even on a cold and rainy night.  The dear old soul, to whom we just sung to, has kindly welcomed us inside her humble abode.
She said - she had soup enough for everyone.  Really?  We think: She's an angel!

Sausage Corn Chowder
1/2 lb. bulk sausage, browned and drained
1 medium onion, chopped fine
3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 15 oz can (or, 2-3 c.) of Corn Kernels ( can use creamed corn)
1 32 oz. carton of Chicken broth or combo of water and chicken bullion cubes - to cook potatoes in.
salt and pepper to taste
dash of red pepper flakes (opt. - but my preference)
2 cups heavy whipping cream
3-4 cups milk
1/4 lb. Velveeta cheese, or 1 cup shredded cheddar (which I prefer)
2 hard boiled eggs, chopped (opt.)

Brown sausage and onion.  Set aside.  Cook potatoes until soft, drain.  Add corn, s & p, cream, cheese, milk, sausage and onion until heated through. Do not let it come to a boil. (Ask me how I know.)  If desired, add hard-boiled egg.  Another option would be to replace the heavy whipping cream for cream cheese, cubed.

Serve up hot with crusty, fresh baked bread and you and your guests will be more than satisfied.

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord, the new born King
Gloria, Gloria

Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo
