Yesterday was the first (real) snow fall of the year – and the perfect day for a chowder and warm biscuits.
- 3TB margarine
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 2 stalks celery diced
- 2 carrots – diced
- 400 g (about 4 small) white potatoes chopped into bite sized pieces

- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- 1/4 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- 1 1/2oz (3 TB) dry white wine
- 1 cup milk (1%)
- 1/2 LB raw shrimp – peeled and tails off
In a sauce pan melt margarine. Add onion, carrots and celery, and cook until onion is soft. Add potatoes and stir. Add the shrimp stock and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered for 10 min, removing cover for last 5 min. Add wine. Lower heat and add milk. Add shrimp and cover – allow to heat until shrimp is cooked 3-5 min (shrimp will turn pink).
