A quest to make sense of it all. Or a sense to make a quest of it all.

It's going to be 30 degrees and rainy tomorrow night.

Seafood Chowder (slightly modified for formerly overly curvacious bankers who like hearing "OMG you're getting so skinny!")

1 1/2 cups fat free milk
1 (8 ounce) container fat free cream cheese
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 (26 ounce) can fat free condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup sliced carrots
1 (15.25 ounce) can whole kernel corn, undrained
1 1/2 cups chopped potatoes
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 pound shrimp
1/2 pound bay scallops
1/2 pound crabmeat 1/2 pound calamari tubes
1 (6.5 ounce) can chopped clams

Place 1/2 cup milk, cream cheese, and garlic in a large pot over low heat. Cook and stir until blended. Mix in soup, green onions, carrots, corn with liquid, potatoes, parsley, and remaining milk. Season with black pepper and cayenne pepper. Simmer 25 minutes. Do not boil.
Mix the shrimp, scallops, crabmeat, calamari, and clams, and continue cooking 10 minutes, or until seafood is opaque.

Nothing too impressive or complicated about it, but it promises to be delicious amd soothing. I plan to whip it up, bake some fresh herb bread, and nestle in front of something spooky.
