There's nothing like a bowl of soup on a cold night. I had a craving for corn chowder and decided to give it a try. I've never been a huge fan of creamy soup but there's something so comforting about them. I watched Eat St back in August or September and it featured this food truck that made "bunny chow". Bunny Chow is a South African dish that consists of a hollowed out loaf of bread with curry inside. Well, as soon as I saw that I immediately thought YUM and of Tim Horton's chili in a bread bowl. And my obsession begins......now. lol
Kevin made me curry in a bread bowl already which is phe-nom FYI. I figured corn chowder would be amazing in it also.
PS: I bought the biggest phallic symbol in IGA for this soup. Effin hilarious.

|Kevin got 2 cuz he's a man who needs more food. LOL|
I served it with a great little side salad. Romaine, radishes, cucumber, carrot and sunflower seeds with an Asian style dressing. Soy sauce, mirin, sesame oil and half a lemon. DELISH.
The multigrain whole wheat buns I got were small but perfect for just me. I didn't have time to go to Cobs to pick up something more suitable. But they worked quite well and it looked cute with 2 on the plate anyways.
I'm not sure what I'll make tonight. Its hard to come up with a new meal for every day of the week. So we'll see what I can come up with for tomorrows post.
Happy Cooking MoFo's!
