Potato Ham Chowder
1/2 lb bacon, fried and drained
1 cup ham, chopped
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup butter
Saute above ingredients for about 5 minutes then add 4 medium chopped potatoes.
Add water just to cover potatoes and 2 chicken boullion cubes, salt, pepper and garlic to taste. Bring to boil for 10 minutes.
Reduce to simmer and add 1 cup frozen or canned corn and 1 cup of milk and 1/2 pint half and half. Stir and simmer half an hour.
Top with chives and shredded cheddar cheese.

Emma had a Dr. appt today - she got 5 shots. Poor thing. She was a trooper though. Jack told her it would just hurt a little bit. What a good big brother. She is a little fussy but hopefully will not be feeling too bad tonight. Momma wants to sleep!!! Her checkup went well. She is healthy and in the 50th percentile for height and weight. Man, I'm used to her bruiser brother who has always been off the charts! I guess she is a petite little flower. Well, maybe not the flower part.

I just got a new Johnson's baby wash. I love it. It is the Vanilla Oatmeal scent. It smells so good and seems to be gentle for my kid's dry skin. Those of you with kids should try it :o) I think I will use it for myself too.

I'm glad you all are enjoying this blog, hope I'm not boring you too much! It has been nice to hear from some of you I haven't talked to in awhile.
