Why chowder of course!
What? You don't crave a bowl of soup when it's sweltering in your house. Well, what's wrong with you?
Me? I crave soup all the time and so when I decided to make some this weekend a little 80 degree weather (which counts for a heat wave in the Pacific Northwest) was not going to stop me.
You know what else wasn't going to stop me? The fact that I didn't have any clams to make this clam chowder. So instead of the called-for clams I substituted a bunch of geoduck that we've had in our freezer for a ridiculously long time, never quite knowing what to make with it. I've felt incredibly guilty about not using it since they're such a pain in the butt to catch and they were given to us by Ben's family so I'm glad to finally be able to say that I found a delicious use for them.
*Never heard of geoduck? No worries. Nobody else has either. It's best described as appearing like a large clam with what looks to be a horse's penis attached. Now if that doesn't make you hungry, I don't know what else will. Go on, now - google it and tell me that I'm right.
