Grilled Corn Chowder

Grilled Corn Chowder from PasstheSushi.comI had a rant about #sharkweek, a rant about the weather, and a rant about the bookshelf I purchased and finally assembled that I think just doesn’t fit in… I am not sure I can return it. Oh noes.

But then I finished a great novel last night, The Alloy of Law, and am spiraling down a deep dark nerdy path this morning looking up new books by favorite authors and watching fan made trailers. Which I didn’t know existed until twenty five minutes ago. Some were ok (and kind of have me craving a not craptastic Zac Snyder stylized version of a fantasy movie with a Peter Jackson budget), others were just spliced movies, lame. But until this morning, I was pretty sure YouTube was just for people trying to get on Tosh.O and cats (especially this cat, who I’m currently obsessing over). Then it went further into i09 articles about what certain favorite characters could do and so on and so forth. Oh man I am hard core waving that nerd flag this morning.

But it seems perfect for a dreary day (in the middle. of. summer.) and a big bowl of this fresh sweet corn chowder. ¬†And I run a comic shop, so it was bound to get nerdy up in here at some point right? If you are looking for some not girly, good old fashioned reading check out the Mistborn trilogy from Brandon Sanderson, The Wake from Scott Snyder, Hawkguy (still awesome) from Matt Fraction, and In the Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. All of which I am anxiously awaiting new issues/volumes. Any day now guys, I know you’re not busy.

    I think Cooking Light has a recipe much like this this month (or was it last month). Either way, yours looks better. I love corn chowder and don’t even care if it’s summer and we’re not ‘supposed’ to eat soup in the summer.

    I’m a sci fi/fantasy fan as long as their written really well. Since I’m not a comic store runner and like the stuff, I guess that makes me a super geek. Ah well. Live long and prosper. :)

    That looks great! I’ll probably try some crab with it instead of shrimp.

    I used to live near a place in Washington state that made a corn & Dungeness crab chowder that was killer. Green salad, a huge bowl of chowder & a beer was a favorite weekend lunch.
