Tonight David and I were hankering for fish, and since he was feeling under the weather I decided to use the potatoes, onions, garlic, sage, celery, salt-cured anchovies, & milk we had in the fridge to make a get well cure: chowder! In addition to the ingredients we had on hand, I made a quick trip to the store and rounded out the soup with some fresh cod, bacon, fennel, and a nice loaf of crusty bread.
With a little help from my chowder experts in Maine (thanks, Jim! thanks, Dad!) and a generous amount of salt, we ended up with a pretty fine dinner.
