Tummy Troubles

Scratch clams from the menu.

Poor Reiner was up most of the night with an upset stomach. My gut is not all that happy either, but at least I was able to sleep. What’s the deal with clams? Neither of us used to have problems eating chowder. Of course, neither of us can remember the last time we had a bowl of the stuff. It puzzles me. Does a digestive tract lose it’s ability to process over the intervening years? Or is there something going on in the clam world that’s causing the trouble? Door number three, perhaps? Or, like all good multiple choice questions, all of the above?

It’s also disappointing. We have been trying new ways of incorporating protein into our diet since we’ve cut out factory farmed meat. Seafood and shellfish are, or up until last night, still on the menu. Shrimp, thank goodness are OK. As long as they have not been packed in saline solution. We must also watch our salt intake.

After all of that, I don’t suppose you want the recipe. But if you do, click on the photo.

  1. I don’t know what’s up with clams, but the last clam chowder I had was in Coastal Maine last September, and it was beyond delish. I hope you have fully recovered.
