New England Clam Chowder

I can not believe that I haven't shared this recipe yet!  Sometimes I just take for granted that all of our favorite meals are already here! This is one of my favorite soups to make.  It a very hearty and filling meal in a bowl and comes together quite quickly.  Be careful of the potatoes — if you get too many this quickly becomes potato soup instead of clam chowder.
