Crawfish Corn and Potato Chowder makes a great winter meal.

By Pam Boesch

This week’s recipe originally was given to me by the Pruitt Family.  Mr. Gary made it one Sunday for the family meal and Ragan raved to me about it.  Since then, it has become a winter favorite for my family and friends too!  Ms. Melwin Barker requested the recipe last week so here it is, Mrs. Mel….Enjoy!
