Our recipe this week: 

Clam Chowder 


1 large can chopped clams (or fresh) 
1 can cream mushroom soup 
chopped mushrooms 
1 chopped onion 
pepper to taste 
6 -8 teaspoons of flour for thickening 
chopped potatoes 
stick butter
4 - 6 cups milk  


Get your little helpers to chop potatoes (we use some left over potatoes mixed with fresh) - chop onion 
Add stick of butter to large pot on stove - when it melts - add onion and cook on low until translucent - 
add potatoes on top of those. 
Drain clam juice into separate bowl - reserving juice for later - add clams to pot simmer for about 5
 minutes. Add 1/2 reserved clam juice to pot along with can of cream of mushroom soup & chopped mushrooms. 
Heat on medium for about 5 more minutes. Begin adding 1 cup of milk at a time and rest of clam juice. 
Stir as you heat it through between each cup being added. 

Keep it moving - stir well. Thicken with flour. Use separate bowl to remove a bit of liquid from chowder 
add teaspoon or two of flour and stir until mixed without lumps - then add to chowder. Pepper to taste. 
Continue to thicken by repeating with flour until desired thickness is reached. 

Everybody get's a taste - just to make sure it's perfect. (Using different spoons of course) 
Serve with yeast rolls and expect rave reviews from the rest of the crew!!! 
Mother of the year award - it's THAT yummy!
