|Clam chowder tasted like the real thing even with substitutions. Check out the link for the fabulous recipe that I based it on. I used turnips, no thickener, and homemade sour cream for the milky base. I think I might have integrated the uncured bacon into the soup as well instead of topping it. Lydia had a hard time with the clams, as I didn't chop them up. She'd never had them recognizable in her chowder before!|
|Leftover chicken and gravy juices made into a broccoli chicken casserole with a hint of curry. The cous cous salad is another cauliflower wonder. Raw cauliflower in the food processor whips up into a faux cous cous.|
