Ice fishing and my favorite chowder recipe

Maine Man took the boys out ice fishing this week and captured some great pictures along the way.  They even caught some fish!

They had lots of actionIMG_8196r

The boys did most of the work drilling the holes and tending their traps so MM had a lot of time to reflect upon how far they’ve come.  I think in many aspects he was very pleased.  However, he did mention it wouldn’t be long before he would no longer be needed.  Bittersweet for him I’d dare say.

With a few pounds of fish needing cooking I recalled my FAVORITE go-to chowder recipe from a post back in 2009.  I triple the batch every time I make it and usually use shrimp and scallops along with fish.  Here is the link directly to the fish chowder recipe.

The simplicity of the recipe is what I love the most.  A few staple ingredients and…. Viola!

I also love that it is a favorite with everyone in the family.
