Seafood Chowder for a cold winter’s night!

Seafood Chowder is so easy and so delicious! I love recipes that are easy to prepare and contains items in your pantry and freezer.  This Chowder fits the bill. My friend and former co-worker, Cyndi, shared this with me a few years ago and it’s a regular on my winter menu.

Hope you enjoy as much as I do!
