Creamy Spinach Parmesan

Side Dish, Vegetable
Heat large skillet to medium-high (350 F for an electric skillet). Add butter and melt, quickly adding garlic and allow to brown for 1 minute. Add the spinach, reduce heat to medium and cook, uncovered, until it wilts and much of the juices evaporate. Depending on the moisture of the spinach, it may exude quite a bit of liquid. Cook until there is 3-4 tbs of liquid left. Add the cream and cook for 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle in parmesan and mix - it may be a bit thin, give it a minute in the pan.

Clam Chowder

Shellfish, Soup
Immerse the carrots, potatoes and onion in the juice from the canned clams--this should come out to around 4 cups of liquid. If it's less, supplement with a little water. Add a bay leaf and the salt, and gently boil until the potatoes and carrots are tender. Remove the bay leaf when done. Meanwhile, chop the bacon into very small bits, and fry over medium heat. You're looking to get the fat out of the bacon, but you'll be keeping this.

The curd will continue to thicken as it cools. Cover immediately and refrigerate up to two weeks. Makes 1 1/2 cups
