Corn Chowder...yummmmy!

This passed the Josh taste test...he ate several bowls so now I have no leftovers for lunch...ah well, what a problem, huh?  The whole family eating the same healthy delish food is a good thing! Slimming World has changed my life and has helped us to eat together as a family - all eating healthy great food!  But I was afraid that Josh was going to lose his tuxedo pants during his recital last night!  He has lost weight too!  I am so proud of you Josh~

Here it is while cooking for 20 minutes.

Here it is before I enjoyed it, sure wish I had made more so I had leftovers!

3 cups of chicken broth made with boullion and 3 cups boiling water
3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
2 cans corn, do not drain
1 medium chopped onion
1 chopped red bell pepper
2 ribs chopped celery
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups skim milk

Saute onions, peppers and celery in a soup pot sprayed with Pam spray for about 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and cook for 20 minutes.  Blend 3/4 of the mixture and leave 1/4 unblended to remain chunky.  Serve!  Yummmmy!  I promise!


  1. what does syns mean??? I am sure you explain it somewhere.

  2. On the Slimming World plan syns are things that you do have to count...for instance, ketchup, chocolate, wine...most real foods are free and can be eaten in great abundance!

  3. How many syns are in the chowder? I've just started slimming world and I've just come across your blog. I think I'll follow you if you don't mind to give me some much needed inspiration.
