So I woke up this morning, and there was a fresh sheet of snow on the ground. Sigh.
I guess that’s why I decided to make something warm and comforting for dinner.
But first, I went to Mercadito for lunch again!
So why Clamless Clam Chowder? Well, I didn’t do it on purpose.
I went grocery shopping and got the below ingredients.
I sauteed chopped potato, celery, onion, and butter together until they softened.
And then I opened the clams…
I’d gotten whole clams instead of minced/chopped clams. They looked gross to me (like alien fetuses or something) so I poured the juice in the soup, and threw the clams out.
I still added cream and chicken stock, and I must say, everything still tasted really good – just like Clam Chowder…minus the clams. Haha.
To go with the soup, I sliced bread and topped it with butter, minced garlic, olive oil, and garlic salt for an easy “garlic bread.”
Anyone else have any cooking mishaps lately?
