Cheesy, Corn and Kielbasa Chowder

My oldest daughter asked me to make her a corn chowder like the one I made before. The one I made with all the ingredients she liked. No wonder she was asking for that chowder. 
I asked my husband if he wanted soup for supper. He said sure but he wanted chicken noodle. I asked his if he wanted homemade. He said no. The can was just fine. I said alright and I would also make my oldest daughter's chowder. I think he is becoming suspicious of me because he asked what was in her chowder. I told him and he said fine. He didn't want me to make two soups. Opening a can and heating it up isn't hard but he said the corn chowder was fine. I think he likes the chowder too.
