Canned Corn Chowder

I did not make this corn chowder. But, I did crush the saltines.

I am in a temporary lockdown period where I'm on a very tight food budget, which means I've been consisting on variations of frozen pizza, instant udon noodles and in tonight's case, canned soup. What falls to the wayside in my frugal eating are vegetables, so I also had a bowl of salad greens.*

*Sheepish admission: I added some Hidden Valley Ranch dip/dressing I made from a packet I've had for months and 16 oz of sour cream. For some reason, I delight greatly in purchasing the large tub of sour cream rather than when I usually opt for the smallest possible container since I never use up the whole thing for tacos, nachos, etc.

Haha, that you crushed the saltines is quite impressive indeed! I have those days where all I eat is canned food and instant noodles too.

Passionate Eater, I'm glad you can commiserate with my plight, but I am so envious of the days when you get to feast on po'boys and oysters! :)

Corn chowder comes in cans?! Wow, there's a rather limited selection of what's available in tins over here. I have to admit that Campbell's chicken noodle is quite comforting at times.

Su-Lin, chicken noodle! Aside from the canned kind, when I was growing up, my mom would make me chicken noodle soup from a packet. Thanks for jogging my memory, I hadn't thought of that bit of my childhood in a while!
