Today’s one of my long day’s at the office so that means a crock pot dinner! I love coming home to the house smelling like a delicious meal and being able to dig in without doing any work. This recipe is particularly simple but since its crab it feels like a bit of a luxury.
Potato Crab Chowder
Prep Time: 5 min. Cook Time: 3 hours crock pot on high, 6-8 on low. Serves: 4-5
- 12-16 ounces Chicken Stock (one can)
- 2 Cans Diced New Potatoes
- 2 6oz Cans Fancy Crab (only because we can’t get fresh crab here)
- 2 Cups Frozen Corn
- 2 Green Onions, chopped
- 1 Cup Milk
- ¾ Cup Flour
- 1 tsp Maurer’s Essence of the Northwest seasoning
- Salt and pepper to taste – I recommend light salt and heavy pepper.
- In a small bowl combine the chicken stock and flour. Whisk together until well combined.
- In crockpot, combine the flour mixture, drained potatoes, drained crab, milk and seasoning.
- Add in the white portion of the green onions, reserving the green part (chives) for a topping at time of serving.
- Stir once through and let simmer as directed above.
- Serve topped with the reserved chives.
We enjoyed our chowder in bread bowls which was a winning combo in my book!
Don’t worry if yours looks a little runny at first, it will thicken up a bit as it cooks. See how my looks a little watery before simmering:
And then after:
I had a much better day after getting my homesickness of my chest earlier this morning. As with everything I can only do my best and that is enough. I am only one person and I am only me – that is enough. *Namaste*
Now, I’m off to pack for our trip this weekend. We’re heading to Idaho and hopefully a swing through Yellowstone (weather permitting) and Grand Teton National Park. We leave tomorrow afternoon so I better get my stuff together!
I’m hoping we can finish the final book of The Hunger Games on our drive this weekend. We finished the first two over Christmas and we just haven’t had that much time together in the car to listen to this last book – which sucks because we left off at a pretty intense moment!
“May the odds be ever in your favor!”
