Semi Homemade Sausage, Potato , Corn Chowder

So, sometimes times are tough, sometimes you just have stuff in your pantry you don't want to eat alone ( canned soups for example) , and sometimes you just want to see if you can fool your family with something that tastes like you slaved over it all day, when it actually took 30 minutes.
 Anyhow, whatever the reason, this was an accident that turned out okay.
The chicken breasts got left out too long on the counter and there was no way I was risking it. So I did some rutting around in my cupboard and fridge and  found a few things to make a decent dinner.. I know it's high fat and sodium but comfort food  on a dreary day.
2 cans Chunky Chicken Corn Chowder
3 medium potatoes, cooked any way you like and chopped to about 1/2 inch in size. Set aside
1 lb breakfast sausage ( Jimmy Dean or your choice)
1/2 onion, cowardly chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 rib celery, sliced thin
2 cups corn
1/2 cup or so of heavy cream or milk ( I went the super fattening , but oh so luscious heavy cream way)
Old Bay Season to your taste, I like it with a kick
In large pot brown sausage, onion, garlic, and celery till sausage is done. Add 2 cans of soup, corn, and cream or milk.

Season to your liking with Old Bay, or if you don't have that use celery salt, paprika, and cayenne ( optional)
Simmer  for about 10 minutes. Next time I will serve it with oyster crackers.
Thanks for checking it out. It's been my first blog in quite a while.

I've missed your posts. I do the same with using up all my ingredients so they won't go to waste. Good call on the chicken. Looks wonderful. I don't let the seasons completely dictate what I eat. If I feel like soup on a hot summer day, I make it!
