I made this Crock Pot Corn Chowder for Dinner today. I just threw everything in the crock pot and cooked it on low for 7 hours. After it was done cooking, I took the ham bone out of the crock pot and got all the ham off of it that I could to put back into the soup. If I had a little flour I would have added it to thicken the soup up some. My husband likes it better that way but I ran out and wasn't going to run to the store for it.

I'm serving this with Cajun Cornbread. The mix was on Clearance last week at Aldi. I don't remember how much I paid for it but I'm sure it was less than $1.

1/4 cup light blue bonnet spread melted ($.06)

This made enough food for the family to eat for dinner tonight and my husband and I to have for lunch tomorrow and it only cost $6.83 to make.
