What's cooking Wednesday

So, I can't do anything about the cold weather, but I can
make a nice warm dinner for my family!
Here are a few recipes to keep you warm, while it's cold outside.
Creamed Peas
(My mom used to make these when we were kids... so yummy!)
1 can green peas
1 TBS margerine
milk, if needed.
Pour an entire can of peas (even liquid) into a microwave safe bowl. Add margerine.
Heat for 1 minute. Remove from microwave. Add enough flour to thicken, as desired. Add
salt to taste. If you accidentally add a little too much flour, you can add a bit of milk to thin. Heat
another minute. Stir & enjoy.
Corn Chowder
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups potatoes, diced
2 cups water
1 can cream style corn
1 can evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste

In a skillet, saute onion and pepper in butter until onion is translucent.
Add potatoes and water; simmer until potatoes are tender, about 15-20 minutes.
Stir in creamed corn and evaporated milk.
Add 1 cup water (may use empty milk can). Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Simmer 15 minutes and remove from heat. May serve warm or cool.
