Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder #SundaySupper

Warm up to fall with a hearty Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder

Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder #SundaySupper Today marks the first day of fall – a season that I cherish the most for the cool, but not to frigid temperatures, the beauty of the changing leaves and the first smells of smoke in the air from fireplaces being lit for the season.  Fall is sweater and boot wearing time with your favorite pair of jeans.  Fall means crisp apples, spiced pumpkins and hearty soups. 

Fall means an entire new season of food to cook and cherish for the limited time that it is around.  A time when it’s okay to have that extra bite or second serving because swimsuit season won’t come around for another 9 months.  

Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder #SundaySupper

#SundaySupper is ringing in the first day of fall with a wonderful array of recipes today. While corn is a summer staple, I always consider it a bit of early fall vegetable as well. Piled high in my vegetable bin, it was clear to me that a hearty corn chowder was necessary to warm up with these cooler temperatures.

Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder #SundaySupper This Bacon, Corn and Shrimp Chowder is utterly deceiving – if you are person who could never have just soup for a meal then I challenge you to make and eat this.  One bowl will keep you satisfied and warm inside of hours on end.  It’s absolutely perfect if you’ve been outside raking leaves all day long.

  20. Bacon, corn and shrimp – oh my! Three of my favourite foods in one delicious, hearty bowl. I love this, Susan! And girl, you’ve managed to do the impossible (for me at least) – you’ve made soup look gorgeous in photos! Mine would look like slop if I tried to take photos of it. When I read the line about fireplaces being lit, I could actually smell it in the air. It’s definitely one of my favourite things about fall, along with everything else you listed.

    • Thanks so much Stacy! I’m so happy you and your husband enjoyed the soup. It is definitely a new favorite of mine. I did make it twice in just a matter of weeks and I rarely do that these days!
