Sorry for the unexpected hiatus in the Vegas story. Friday ended up being busy the whole day through and Saturday as well. I'll post some highlights from the past week as a series of short posts, then get back to the original storyline. Let's start with food news...
I made Jim Wright's Clam Chowder (finally!).
Here is the mise en place:
And the final product:
It is delicious. Even though it has a roux in the recipe, it didn't get very thick (for me anyway -- maybe I screwed it up!) but that's a good thing because I'm not a big fan of overly starchy soups or stews. Thank you, Jim, for posting the recipe.
