Do I have to tell you how happy this will make your tummy?   I’ll let Pooh tell you!

My Mom makes all kinds of chowders…………….her personal fave is what she calls “Seafood Chowder” – it’s got clams, oysters, cod filets, shrimp, potatoes, corn, milk AND half-n-half and pinches of this that and the other.   All I know is when she’s making it Dad won’t stay out of the kitchen.    Chowders are great for cool nights or days……….but my Mom says they’re delicious any old time.    This one sure is – just ask POOH!

“yawn”…..well thanks to my sampling that chowder while I made it for you, I’m tired and so I’m going to take a royal nap.    Happy Saturday and Happy Baking/Cooking!!!
