Happy Birthday Mr. President

John F. Kennedy a man who stood up for America and while many whisper in the background about some things that he may have been involved in all wonder what would have had happened if John F. Kennedy had not been shot and taken out so early in life. He had many followers and great ideas and just like my mama the whole world cried the day he was shot and killed. But today May 29, 2012 John would have been celebrating his birthday like he did in style in this little tidbit.

It was noted that Clam Chowder was one of the presidents favorite foods so since I love to blog about food I thought I might share this tasty recipe from taste of home.

1 large onion, chopped
3 medium carrots, chopped
2 celery ribs, sliced
3/4 cup butter, cubed
2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of potato soup, undiluted
3 cans (6-1/2 ounces each) minced clams
\3 tablespoons cornstarch
1 quart half-and-half cream
  • In a large saucepan, saute the onion, carrots and celery in butter until tender. Stir in potato soup and two cans of undrained clams. Drain and discard juice from remaining can of clams; add clams to soup.
  • Combine cornstarch and a 1 cup of cream until smooth; stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Gradually stir in the remaining cream; heat through. Yield: 9 servings (about 2 quarts).
