Cupboard chowder.....

I had a couple cans of clams lanquising in the cupboard for a couple of years so I thought I'd whip together some quick clam chowder. I cooked up 4 strips of bacon and then sauteed half a chopped onion, and a shallot in the bacon fat. I threw in some frozen celery and after that browned slightly I added about 1/3 cup of flour. I then added 2 bottles of clam juice and thicked that slightly. I added the clams and some cubed baking potatoes. I threw in some thyme and herbs de provence as well.

Chelsea told me she wouldnt eat any, but she ended up finishing her bowl. I heated up some frozen sourdough rolls and put out some light smoked gouda. Robin loved the soup too.
