Patty’s Shrimp Chowder

Wow - a fabulous chowder from Patty’s kitchen!  A creamy shrimp chowder brimming with fresh veggies.  It has a bit of a kick but not too spicy.  Perfect for a chilly night served with freshly baked bread and a crisp green salad.  I’ll be making this often!  This one’s a keeper.
