                That's right, I was so taken with the celery, I didn't see the plastic spoon!

                    Chewer, another great looking soup!!! Or Chowder I guess. Hmm, is Chowder a soup? Anyway, just when I was going to start my negative calorie diet here is this to look at! :~(  Oh, but wait... I think I do see some celery in there. This will fit right in with my new eating habits. :~)))

                              It's has gotten to the point that I can't look at his posts before I have eaten dinner or I will eat the hinges off the refrigerator.

                                Looks terrific. Except, of course, for the bacon.
                                 
                                And the plastic spoon.

                                      Once an Irishman always an Irishman, once you added potatoes you had a winner.  Who threw the overalls in Mr Chubby's chowder ?  It's an Irish trick it's true..

                                        How come fancy crocs and plastic spoons ???

                                        It's a BBQ, can't get too fancy, people will get suspicious!

                                          Recipe??

                                          Chicken broth
                                          Chicken stock
                                          bacon
                                          chefs potatoes
                                          celery diced small
                                          cheddar cheese[ thanks Joe]
                                          whole cream, 1/2 &1/2 will do
                                          ground thyme
                                          parsely
                                          Roux made with bacon fat[thanks BillyB]
                                          High simmer the bacon in 1/4 of the broth, rendering out much of the fat.
                                          cube up the potatoes into various sizes, leave raw
                                          take the broth after pouring some of the fat off for roux
                                          add the remaining broth, potatoes, celery,  bacon broken up, bring to a simmer, add thyme and parsely to taste, add some stock to taste
                                          as potatoes are getting done stir in cheese
                                          make a roux to thicken after adding whole cream, again at a simmer
                                          when done, ladle into a crock, top with more cheese, melt under the broiler, add additional bacon on top of the cheese
                                          Takes maybe 20-25 minutes

                                            What happened to that  sterling silver spoon that I gave you?

                                            After Micheal Hoffman's visit, I couldn't find it!

                                              That looks delicious, Is that on your menu?

                                              Not all the time, I always have Chili, Cream of Crab, and some soup I dream up, the popular ones get recycled now and then.

                                                That would work too.

                                                      So what is the difference between broth and stock?

                                                        Sometimes those terms can be confusing, but this is about the best explanation I've seen.  As you can see, the line has been blurred in recent years.

                                                          So what is the difference between broth and stock?



                                                          The broth is of course liquid, the stock is a condensed broth you buy in jars, McCormick is what we use here. We use it for flavoring many things including a little in our Mac and Cheese.
