As I planned my meals for the week, I came across a recipe for Crab Meat Clam Chowder. It was a basic New England style clam chowder that included crab meat, and sure sounded delicious to me! So I got the necessary ingredients and made the chowder today for lunch.
First of all, it was so easy to make I wondered why I rarely make chowder!
While it simmered, I sent an email to my husband, telling him how he can look forward to a tasty chowder when he gets home. (I won't be home this evening, thus I prepared it for my lunch, but he will have it for supper.) However, after I ate a bowlful (alright, alright... I had two bowls full... but they were shallow bowls) I sent him another message telling him the chowder was down right nasty and not to worry about it, I will take care of it so that he won't have to suffer through eating it.
Somehow, he didn't believe me! *innocent grin*
If you don't believe me either, you might want to try it out. I posted the recipe on my Recipe Page. Click Here.
(Note: I selected a can of minced clams that contained only chopped sea clams, clam juice, salt and wild clams. I got it from the health/natural food store. The canned clams at most grocery stores had way too many additives for my preference. I purchased crab meat from the deli at Sunflower Market.)
