In honor of Super Bowl Sunday, I made both soup (or more accurately, a chowder), and sundaes (I will share that later this week).
My husband is originally from Massachusetts, so I had to make a fish chowder in honor of his New England Patriots.

Melt the butter in a large, heavy pot over medium heat. Add the onions and celery and saute until tender but not brown.
Add the potatoes and chicken broth and simmer for 10 minutes.
Add the fish and continue to simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
Combine the Old Bay seasoning, pepper, clam juice and flour and whisk until smooth. Add to the pot, stirring gently, and continue to cook for about 5 minutes until it starts to thicken.
Add the evaporated milk and heat through.
Sprinkle with a little extra Old Bay, if desired, for color.
My Man really enjoyed this. It brought him back to his mom's cooking, I think. He just kept saying, "This is good!"
I hope that tonight's game isn't giving him indigestion, though!
