Lobster and Potato Chowder

This hearty and creamy chowder is perfect when you’re craving something to fill your belly on a cold winter day.  I used lobster from two, cooked lobster tails that I picked up at my local grocery store. They were $6 each and well worth it.  If you can’t find pre-cooked lobster or are looking for a more economical choice, shrimp or crab can be used in place of the lobster.

I love serving this soup or any soup for that matter, with my cheesy-garlic bread.  It's the best cheesy-garlic bread ever.  And I'm not just saying that because I made it.  It really is so good.  I will be making and photographing a batch soon so I can post the recipe on here.
