And yet, here I am again, presenting a recipe that is smothered in cheese and bacon. You can give me a hug next time you see me. :) We are going to Disneyland in exactly 9 days, and we are pinching pennies like crazy to save for the trip. For dinner tonight, I didn't have any meat thawed, and I found this recipe for corn chowder. It's basically just potato soup with corn mixed in, but it was a cheap and quick meal. I think it would be safe to say that I'm not alone in the I-desperately-need-cheap-and-easy-meals-right-now category. This fits the bill. My oldest brother would refer to this as "clown puke," but I like it. :)

Cook the bacon according to package directions.
Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add the flour. Stir it until it starts to stick together and form a ball(ish) shape.
