It has been raining all day:). It is BEAUTIFUL here in our little Arizona valley. We rarely, if ever, get rain like this. It was raining when I woke up and has continued to rain all day. Yea!!! We need this moisture so badly.
I don’t know about you, but rainy days make me want a pot of soup on the stove so the aroma can compliment the smell of rain outside. I had some corn and sausage in the fridge that were just calling to me. So, I combined them into this delicious chowder filled with hearty meat. Yum!
