Right now I'm conflicted between shepherd's pie or meatloaf. Might go for the meatloaf and then make parmesan mashed potatoes and perhaps some corn as veggies....

Probably making corned beef, smashed potatoes,cabbage fried with bacon/onions and beer, rye bread (made it last week and froze the rest-first time ever made bread.) Could change it to linguine w/white clam sauce-see how day goes.

It's minus 21 right now with wind chill of 50 below-needless to say I'm going nowhere!!!

Brrrrrrr, that is cold. Our temperature is dropping instead of getting warmer as it gets towards afternoon--weird! I'm curious LaceyEx...how do you make your white clam sauce?

Hi Cyn-looks like you're getting more snow? Ours won't melt til May at this rate!!!

Okay-I don't measure so here goes: Put about 2T olive oil and 2T butter in saucepan and add sliced or chopped garlic (I do about 3 large buds),hot pepper flakes and a squirt of anchovy paste and saute on low til softened. Remove from heat.
I use 2 cans canned clams (don't have a choice). Put a little clam liquid in a cup and add 2T flour, mix well. Add to butter/oil/garlic and add about 1/4c water. Put back on heat and stir til thickened. Add remaining clams and juice, parsley, salt/pepper to taste. Keep on low heat awhile and pour over linguine. If it gets too thick I add some bottled clam juice.
Garlic bread, a salad and you're set.
BTW-when I go "home" to NJ I always bring back anchovy paste and cans of whole baby clams as all I get here are chopped or minced.
Got this recipe from a very dear friend years ago and who recently passed away.We think of her everytime we make it.

Well my sauce is cooking away and it smells great! Thanks Crazyworld for the recipe. I did do a little extra to it----hee---I was drinking a glass of wine, my typical glass of wine while making dinner and I decided "what the heck" so I poured the rest of my glass of wine in the sauce. We'll see.......

Cyn...let me know how that wine worked out for you. I'm not too sure I would have done that but everyone has different tastes.
