Monday was girls day out! So we went for lunch at Klinks on the LAKE, about 30 miles from Spokane, WA. A delish treat! On the way back home we had to stop at a small vegetable farm, for some fresh produce. LOL! We loaded up with cabbage, beets and garlic. Once home I put together a recipe for this chowder, using the whole head. My friends loved it, I hope you will also. It is so creamy and good. Yesterday we went back for more cabbage, etc. I am now in the process of baking MY RECIPE for STUFFED CABBAGE...48 rolls so far! and counting. Yes I always share with my friends. Nancy... AUG
