Ham and Corn Chowder

Oh, this turned out so good this time! It was perfect on a cold rainy day!

The Menu:
Ham and Corn Chowder

The Original Recipe:
I got this out of My best loved casseroles cookbook (ok, this isn't a casserole!) and I make quite a bit in the fall/winter time. I made some changes below in my own recipe, which made this soup even better!!

Ham and Corn Chowder

6-8 Potatoes (of your choice) cubed
2 can Cream of potato soup
1 cup Frozen corn
2 stalks Celery chopped
1 Small onion chopped
1lb. Ham steak cubed
1 3/4 cup Milk

Mix everything in crockpot and cook on low 6-8 hours.

The Way I Made It My Own:
I just think this is way better! Even my 11 year old complimented on how good it was.
