Christmas Eve Chowder
4 can condensed cream soup (I use two New England clam chowder, one cream of potato, one cream of shrimp)
2 soup cans whole milk
2 cups finely chopped celery
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
Lots of salt and pepper
1 package frozen tiny salad shrimp, thawed as directed
Saute celery in melted butter until nearly tender. While that's sizzling, add 4 cans soup to large crockpot. Whisk well to blend. Add 2 soup cans of whole milk. Add celery and drained corn to crockpot. Salt and pepper to taste. Cook on low for 3 to 4 hours. If soup is too thick, add more milk, but you want it to be thick like chowder. About 30 minutes before serving, add shrimp. Continue cooking until shrimp is heated through and chowder is hot. Serve with oyster crackers.
