Aiiight. Something light, warm and filling. Great with crackers and bread. "Less cream and flour, please," I reminded the man. He used less than a quarter of the bottle. While some restaurants' versions are great, I'd like the home interpretation to be less thick and lighter on the cream.
Thing is, when the man cooks, it's also in sizable quantities. Tonight's pot of clam chowder held more than enough for seconds for six people. Luckily the man had factored in seeing the friends, so we could pack a 30-oz tub for them too. At the end of the evening, we're still left with a huge bowl of soup for the next day.
