January 21, 2020 is New England Clam Chowder Day

It’s New England Clam Chowder Day! Chowders originated in fishing villages on the coast of France in the 16th century. Back then any kind of fish chowder was considered a poor man’s dish. Most recipes called for salt pork and biscuits, which were both part of a standard sailor’s ration. Today, we’ve substituted the biscuits (also known as hardtack) for salty crackers!

There are many different varieties of clam chowder including New England, Manhattan, Rhode Island, Down East, and Outer Banks. New England clam chowder is made with milk or cream, and the use of tomatoes is frowned upon. In fact, in 1939 the state of Maine made it illegal to put tomatoes in clam chowder!

Celebrate this great culinary tradition and enjoy a bowl of delicious chowder in honor of New England Clam Chowder Day!

Today’s Menu: New England Clam Chowder & Potatoes w/ Griiled Ham & Cheese Sandwich

I’m ending my year on a comfort food delight dinner! I had New England Clam Chowder w/ Hearty Potatoes along with a Grilled Ham and Cheese. I used Campbell’s New England Clam Chowder. Thick, hearty and tasty and very easily made. Just heat and serve! I used Sara Lee Thin Sliced Honey Ham, Sargento Reduced Fat Colby/Jack Sliced Cheese, and Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. The Ham is only 60 calories while the Cheese is only 50 calories a slice, and I used 2 slices for the sandwich. For dessert/snack later a Mini Bag of 100 Calorie Jolly Time Pop Corn.
