slurp!

If thermal underwear isn't enough to keep you warm, here's a favorite winter-weather recipe.

Doris Lamb's Clam Chowder
(I don't know who Doris Lamb is, but I found this recipe in my Grandma's cookbook)

1 can clams
1 onion finely chopped
6 cubed, cooked potatoes
1/2 c butter
1/4 c vegetable oil
1 c flour
5 cups 2% milk
1 tsp sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Pour clam juice over onion and cook until tender. Melt butter, add flour and blend together, add milk and stir until thick. Add clams and vegetables. Heat and serve.

We refer to her as Dorie. She's Grandma's best friend and the best cook. Connie makes this similar recipe but uses Half N Half instead of 2% milk.

Cool! The recipe feels extra-special now. I also have substituted some half n half for milk and it's really delicious. (Also, the original called for celery, but I'm against celery in chowders)
