On the National Stage, today is both National Clam Chowder Day and National Chocolate Nut Day. The clam chowder thing, I can see. It’s February, and for those of us in the northern hemisphere, it’s cold outside. Big bowls of rich, creamy soup is what the body wants. I just couldn’t bring myself to post another recipe for clam chowder just yet. Don’t get me wrong, a good clam chowder is one of my favorites. So much so that I’ve shared two recipes thus far – Cheater’s Clam Chowder and Smokey Clam Chowder.
