Easy, Quick and Tasty

Easy Clam Chowder
yesterday and will finish today
so good.

Chopped onion, celery and potatoes cooked

Add to 1 can of Clam Chowder
1 can of chopped clams, used a little liquid

Simmer altogether with a cup of half and half
or little more

ending with a splash of Sherry
and topping with crumbled bacon, cheese
and Parsley and Chives
still thriving in garden.

Wondered about adding a touch of hot sauce,
know my son would :)
as he adds to everything.

Next will try a seafood chowder
adding shrimp, oysters and cod.
My favorite
lobster not readily available

I made enough for 2 days
so good with some Gouda cheese crackers
I found at market.

 I may
make again and
add more of everything and serve
when family visits.

Thankful that I like my food more then eating out,
still love to cook and enjoy taking a recipe and changing.

reading one of your entries
thank you for reminding me of
my favorite chowder.

You are welcome Ernestine. Your clam chowder makes my mouth water. I have often thought of adding other seafood...I might try it too.

I am hungry looking at it, what a great recipe.

I also love a leek/potato/bacon chowder.

A great idea on these cold nights. I need to make more soups!!!

We are just back from a restaurant where they have excellent potato soup. I think that clams would have been a good addition. It was much thicker than mine. The cheese, bacon and green onions were dripping over the edge of the cup. It was so good. I didn't have a cup, but took a taste of Joe's.

Balisha, we could just add the clams to the potato soup
as it looks like what we prepare.
