Today’s post is a little of a stretch… but I’m just having fun with it! The SSINK Team members are posting their favorite soup recipes and my family just LOVES my clam chowder! Clams, cream, & bacon! Yum!! Can’t go wrong!
So, how do you make a clam chowder card? I’m not sure, but I CAN make a Mermaid card and she swims around with clams, right?
Ink, Spray, Smash Technique
I pulled out my Glossy Paper to make a shiny water scene with the Ink, Spray, & Smash Technique. See more about that technique HERE. I used Bermuda Bay & Pineapple Punch Reinkers, sprayed them with a little water using the Stampin’ Spritzers, and smooshed 2 Glossy Sheets Together.
It’s really a fun technique and no card is alike.
I’ll list the supplies at the end of this post so that you can try it yourself at home!
1 diced onion
1 cup diced celery
2 cups diced potatoes
2 cans chopped clams
3 slices bacon
3/4 cup butter
3/4 cup flour
1 quart half & half
Salt & pepper
In very large saucepan, place onions, potatoes, & celery. Pour clam juice over them, then add enough water to cover them. Simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are done.
In the meantime, fry bacon & break into small pieces. Set aside. Melt butter. Add flour & whisk until smooth. Add half & half. Whisk. Cook to thicken. Pour cream mixture into vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, & sugar. Last, add clams & bacon. Heat. DO NOT BOIL!
Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure & let me know if you try my Clam Chowder Recipe!! And also, if you’d like more recipes mixed in with cards… 2 of my favorite things!
