Clam Chowder

A happy accident happened in my soup pot the other day.  I was hungry.  It was 9pm and we hadn’t had supper.  Working late at the house is really taking a toll on my cooking.  I needed something fast so I put some grilled cheese sandwiches on the Pizzaz but needed something to go with them.

I went to the pantry.  I had a can of It was a busy weekend at the house.  Both days were all day work days for me and Hubby.  We had a little help from Craig, Kelli and Kalissa too…not both days and not all time but the help sure was appreciated!

Sunday morning on the blog I showed a picture of all the paint cans that had been used up in the last week.  One blog reader left a comment saying, “Now you can relax”.  I read the comment to Hubby and we both burst out laughing.  Relaxing hasn’t happened here now will it for some time.

We are on to sanding floors.  I knew in the refrigerator I had some leftover potatoes.

Clam chowder came to mind.  I put cut up an onion and sauteed it.  I added some diced cooked potatoes.  I added the minced clams and clam sauce. I added a can of cream of celery soup.

That’s it…and it was good and exactly what I needed…a meal in minutes!

I didn’t really plan on adding it to the blog but then I realized that I am not the only one who needs a meal in minutes.  I’ll be making this again…and again.

  1. I was having this talk w my DD this afternoon, How soup is a survial food. a little of this and that…. I fxed what could be considered GARBAGE soup… left over this ad that a can of tomatoes.. Wala! it’s soup

  2. We eat a ton of soup since type 2 became a part of life for us! Try using turnips for the potatoes the taste and texture in soup is almost the same and you now have a really low carb soup. I’m thinking I might plant turnips this year instead of potatoes.
