Reader Recipe Submission- German Sausage Chowder

Today's recipe and photo is a submission from a friend and reader, Bonnie Cork.  She sent it over to me saying that the soup is super yummy and full of flavor.  She and her husband both really enjoyed it and she knew I would to.  I am always looking for new soups to try so I was thrilled she passed this onto me.  Thank Bonnie!
