Lad's Steamed Clams



My cousins staying with us left this morning and came back with a large container of clams and asked me to cook them. I thought they might be tired of seafood since we had it for Christmas and the day after,but they said they didn't have enough clams. So this was what we had for lunch with lot's of garlic bread for dunking.
