After a long, cold day, it’s such a treat to dig into a hot bowl of creamy chowder to warm you up. These delicious chowder recipes are the perfect dinner to enjoy with your family.
Most years, we start wearing coats before September ends and the first snow happens long before trick or treaters are ringing the doorbell here in Maine. But this year has been different. Although our heat has been on for about a month thanks to cool nights, the daytime has been mild.
By mild, I mean that while it’s been chilly, it hasn’t been outright cold. In other words, we’ve been making do with warm sweatshirts and sweaters and holding off on coats.
So it’s November now, and we’re only beginning to dig out our coats from our recent move. Go figure.
