Thanks Val, I think I got It right this time.. and it is smelling soooooooooo GOOD.....



Ok let me start from the beginning When i was a child my grandma made the best clam chowder this side or anyside of california.....she used clams and celery stalk, the leaves from celery an onion ,potatoes and i thought condensed milk.. but thinking back on it she used evaporated milk...and told me to make sure it was not condensed..damn! to my shock and horror they only make sweetend condensed milk, which is what she did not use, you see when i used to make my clam chowder i would call my grandma a millions times asking her this or that..... wel as i am making my clam chowder my base is good.... really good , then i start pouring in the milk.. and let me tell you do not use sweet condensed milk it ruined my whole pot.. it was the worst, so i e-mailed val....and she sent me this recipe....which i now have cooking...thank god she did not send me her no. because i would of been calling her asking the paticular questions....but its all good and val you rock , my house smells good.....






So yesterday as we know was fri. the 13th.. ughhhhhhh, and it was a bad day.. first off i was walking threw the house and twisted my ankle ...damn it hurt then i go lay down getting off my foot and knock over a whole can of soda, which went int my puse, and to top all that off, when i was walking out the door, smash my finger..... grrrrrrrrrrrrr...we were suppose to have clam chowder but you all now what happened to that......so Dave took me out to a reatarant called gino's and it was the best.......






well today just sitting here doing nothing , hope everyone else is having a good weekend!
