Seafood Chowder

Seafood Chowder

A few years ago, I heard that eating seafood or fish on New Year’s Day was good luck. I cannot say that any great fortune has come to us since then but I cannot begin to count my blessings either.

My family looks forward to this chowder every year. Now, Iowa is obviously not the hotspot for oceanic delicacies (though we have much better access to it these days than ever before) so I am not proposing that my recipe would compete with coastal regions. However, in the middle of the winter, this warms us from the inside out.
