Scallop & Corn Chowder

I just made this for Mr. Army Man he is feeling somewhat under the weather..

You'll need:
1/2 med. white onion
1 stalk of celery (optional)
2 potatoes
1 can creamed corn
2 bags of baby scallops (they come in frozen section & are in tiny packages.. sold for like 99 cents a pack)
1 cup of milk
1 cup of chicken stock
1 T. paprika
salt & pepper
garlic powder
1 T. butter
1 T. flour
Cut up all veggies.. Dethaw scallops beforehand. Add butter to a large soup pot. Melt and add onion, celery and potatoes in a small dice. Sprinkle with flour. Cook until soften. Add chicken stock. Add seasoning. Add scallops. (wash & drain). At the end add the milk. (can use heavy cream, but I use soy milk.)

*I cut my celery up into a small dice and put them in tuperware or a plastic baggy and freeze. Just remove and throw into pot. I do this because I never use a full bag of celery and there is no point in wasting. Also do this with green onions.
