Potato Corn Zucchini Chowder

This veggie-loaded chowder is so rich, hearty and satisfying, perfect for chilly nights!

You know how you get really excited about something and all you can do is think about it and look forward to it until it actually happens? Well I’ve been doing that all week, which has been making the work week excruciatingly long!

So what exactly is happening this weekend? Well, Jason’s sister scored a free night voucher at this casino hotel with a lobster buffet up in San Diego but children are not allowed. So since Jason and I are the “young couple” in the family and child-free, the vouchers got passed down to us. Jason is flying in from SF tomorrow and we’re heading straight to San Diego where we’ll gorge on some BBQ ribs at Phil’s BBQ and do some major damage at the lobster buffet.

But before I head off to my weekend getaway, I leave you with this potato corn zucchini chowder. It came together when I had so many lingering veggies just lying around the fridge that just had to get used at that moment or else it would have ended up in the trash the next day. The veggies that I used came together quite well, and it coincidently shied away from the potato-carb overload.

I’m sure this soup will be in constant rotation at our house. It really is such a good way to use up your veggies in the fridge, and it serves as a comforting, hearty bowl of soup any time during the day!
