Seafood Chowder

I thought winter is almost over. And I’m so wrong about it. It’s been snowing for the last couples of days. Now we got at least a foot of snow on the ground. Temperature is stil dropping down. It’s so painful to be outside at this moment. I made some chowder tonight and it was a big hit. Everybody loves it. I hope you try this recipe. And tell me what you think.
