Potato Corn Chowder – As Seen on YoVin Vlog

Yes, I wanted soup, in Florida, on a 93 degree day. Hear me out. I had my first filling. I had just left the dentist. My face was numb and all kinds of feeling weird. I was hungry but scared to eat! I thought, soup should work. Vinnie always to my rescue whipped up potato corn chowder for me in no time. It was delicious but it was still hard to eat!
