Corn Chowder

So, I know that most of my "readers" are in colder parts of the US than I am. The other day (it was probably in the mid 80's) I had the cooler on and I was cold. So I decided to make soup and corn bread. It was very yummy and I thought my friends who are actually having colder weather might appreciate this!
1 can corn (drained)
1/2 cup chopped onion (or 4 Tbsp. dried chopped onions
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 14 ounce can chicken broth
1 cup cubed peeled potato (about 1 medium potato)
4 tsp. all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 1/2 cups milk
3 slices bacon, crisp cooked, drained and crumbled

In a large saucepan, cook onion in hot oil until tender but not brown. Stir in the chicken broth and potato. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered for 10 minutes. Stir in corn. Cook covered about 10 more minutes or until potato is tender, stirring occasionally.

In a small bowl combine flour, salt and pepper. Add milk in to flour mixture; add to corn mixture in saucepan. Cook and stir until slightly thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 more minute (I let mine go for a while on the stove). Add crumbled bacon just before serving.

Makes 4 servings. Serve with corn bread... Delish

***Sorry about the crappy pictures.. Seriously. I am not impressed with my camera. It takes HORRIBLE indoor pictures (Nikon Coolpix S220) Don't ever get it...

It's already in the 40s at night here, so I am on a major soup kick - thanks for sharing. And it's not just your camera. I'm convinced there is not a point-and-shoot out there that can take a decent indoor picture. I've been contemplating a real DSLR for some time, but just can't convince myself yet that it's worth it...
