Temperatures below zero for several days has my stomach thinking of hot soups and chowders. I made this for supper last night and the kids loved it so much they asked for an encore for supper tonight. Since I tend to just dump stuff together, Spark requested that I also write it down so we can have it again. This is super simple, I made it in a large frying pan.
In a 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil, sauté an onion and couple of stalks of celery. Cube 6-7 potatoes depending on how big they are. Add the potatoes to the onion, some chicken stock (enough to boil the potatoes in) and a pinch of cayenne pepper (unless you really like spicy food then increase to your liking). When potatoes are done, mash about half of them and return to the pan. Add a bag of sweet corn and heat through. Before eating, add some shredded cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
