The Daley Weekly

October 6, 2021

 


 


Welcome October! I love October. It is by far my favorite month overall. I love the cool temperatures, colorful leaves, large orange pumpkins, and the smell of wood smoke from the chimneys in the neighborhood. I love the chill in the air and the gentle reminder that winter is just around the corner. I love the decorations and the food. There is just something so satisfying about the smell of pumpkin muffins baking in the oven while I dig out my heavy winter sweaters and store my shorts and flip-flops for another day. 

Be sure to scan down toward the bottom of this email for a wonderful fall recipe for hearty shrimp chowder.

Also in the body of the newsletter is a new mini mystery. Clues will be presented on October 6th, 13th, 20th, and 27th. Collect the clues all month and then enter the rafflecopter which will be provided on 10/27.

The randomly chosen winner of the $25 Amazon gift card from last months mini mystery was K. Leonard with the correct answer of Annette won first place and Sylvia won second place. Congrats! The card has been ordered so look for an email from Amazon.

Speaking of fall, and of course Halloween, I want to remind everyone that I have a Halloween Page on my website. You can access the Amazon page for any Halloween book by simply clicking on the cover of the book you are interested in. https://www.kathidaley.com/copy-of-halloween-page-1

Cheesy Shrimp Chowder
 
The following recipe is a guide. I'm a dump and taste sort of cook so the quantities of each ingredient changes with my mood but this recipe will give you a place to start.

Base:
1 stick butter
½ chopped onion (or more if you like onion)
3-4 cloves garlic, chopped
6 cups peeled and diced potato (frozen hash browns work as well)
2 lbs. cooked shrimp (any size)
32 oz. chicken broth (can use part chicken broth and part water if preferred)
 
Spices: amounts can be adjusted to accommodate taste.
¼ tsp. chili powder
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
¼ tsp. ground cumin
¼ tsp. coriander
½ tsp. nutmeg
½ tsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white pepper
 
Melt butter in heavy pan. Sauté onion and garlic. Add potatoes and shrimp.
Cover with chicken broth (just enough to boil potatoes). Add spices.
Boil until potatoes are tender; the time will vary depending on the size of potato cubes.
 
Cheese sauce:
While potatoes are boiling, use a separate pan to make cheese sauce.
 
1 stick butter
4 oz. cream cheese (1 small or ½ large pkg.)
1 cup heavy cream
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (do not use non or low fat)
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese (or 1 cup Parmesan and 1 cup Romano)
 
Melt butter in pan over medium heat. Add cream cheese. Stir until melted. Add cream. Add cheese a little at a time.
 
After potatoes are tender, slowly fold cheese sauce into base. Stir constantly until well blended.
