Potato and Sausage Chowder

For me this is the ultimate in all time comfort food.  The creamy potato and tangy sausage lift my spirits every time.  This recipe is enough to serve four.  If you prefer to trim it down use turkey or chicken sausage. This recipe has always been a family favorite and gets many requests.

Potato and Chosder Soup

Six medium to large potatoes
1 package smoked sausage
3 cups hot water
1 package frozen corn
1/2 medium onion
2 TBS olive oil
1 TBS garlic powder
1/2 TBS salt1/2 TBS pepper
1 cup milk
1/2 stick margarine

1/2 cup four
3/4 cup cold water

Clean potatoes with a brush, leaving skin on. Cut potatoes and sausage in bite size pieces. Place in a large pot and cover with water. Chop onion and saute in olive oil until translucent. Add onion and frozen corn to potatoes. Add seasonings and allow to boil until potatoes are nearly tender, approximately 15 minutes. Add milk and margarine continuing to cook for for 15 more minutes. Add flour to a cereal bowl and cover with water whisking briskly to avoid lumps. Add flour to chowder and allow to thicken.
