The Simple Dollar Morning Roundup: Ham, Corn, and Cheese Chowder Edition

We had a great supper last night. It took five minutes to make and was very cheap for a family of three. Take some chopped up leftover ham, add a can of cream of mushroom soup, a can of corn, about half a cup of milk, and some chopped up carrots or chopped up potatoes if you’ve got them (they’re both good, but not essential). Let it simmer for five minutes. Add a cup of shredded cheese, some pepper, and about two tablespoons of parsley. Let it simmer for five more minutes. Stir it a lot. Serve with some extra cheese on top and some crackers. We made it out of leftovers and some stuff in our cupboard and it was delicious.
