I am still keeping busy….

I have lots of reading to do for my environment class and I am busy writing my first essay for english class. It does not leave a lot of free time for me between my schedule, Mike’s, and the boys! We made this chowder about two weeks back. DELICIOUS!

2 strips wegmans reduced fat bacon, diced small
½ cup sweet onion, diced small
