Updated on March 11, 2011

As fall settles in, and the days start to shorten up and the temps drop, especially in the early evening, few aromas match the wafting smells of fresh chowder on the stove. Here is a special chowder variation from “The Cupboard Drawer”. This one can be a great starter, or with a sandwich (grilled Cheese) or hot biscuits stand as the main course of a kitchen meal. Enjoy…..

      BPop and Stars Thanks to both of you for stopping by.

      I can't say that I am a big fan of Chowders but My Dad was and he loved this one as did my wife. Enjoy and know that recipe is over 100 years old as it came from my Dads mom who got it from her Mom. The canned verbage was added after WWII by my Mom.
