#88 NE Clam Chowder

I cheated.
I put everything in the crock pot and crossed my fingers hoping it would turn out ok after 5 hours.
So you need everything pictured plus some.
Olive oil.
Half  n half (silver top NZ).
Cream.
Dry Cooking wine.
Butter.
Onion.
Celery.
Carrots.
Old Bay Seasoning (imported, similar to Creole).

I grated in the vegetables after making a cold roux at the bottom of the pot.
Added 1 1/2 cups of fish stock, and 1 c wine.
Add the clams frozen solid.
I had a can of flaked lemon fish from the local Asian grocery and threw it in too.
Dice and cook a potato separately and add to the chowder an hour before serving.


A must.

Anchovy sauce. Smells like holy damn, but tastes delish.
You just need a Tbsp. Any more and you may aswell dine on the bottom of the ocean.


Served to go.
Thanks Warehouse for your 50% off Sistema to-go brand tupperware.

Clam Chowder? Yes. The best one is in a can. (NE = New England).

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
