Megans Cookin: Soup And Scones May Break Your Bones

Soup And Scones May Break Your Bones

But Goblins will never hurt ya!

Exspecially if you feed them these tasty Chipotle Cheddar Scones and a cup of this Clam Chowder. I got the recipe for these scones from the November issue of Cooking Light.

The recipe calls for 1 tablespoon of chipotle peppers in adobe sauce. I blended the whole can in the food processor and then froze the peppers in Baggies . I use two tablespoons per baggy, that way I can just pull out what I need. The chipotle and Cheddar were wonderful additions to these light scones. Well, I didn't keep them that light. I used Cheddar with full fat content and loved every bite.

The soup should have came from my Cooking Light Magazine. Then it would of been a quiltless pleasure. But I wanted thick, creamy fat induced chowder. I wanted stuff like I get at Bodega Bay. Real Clam Chowder. So I went checking around and found this chowder recipe.
It was just right. Onions and potatos and chewy clams all in a thick, rich chowder
base. It's worth your own batch, I promise.

I love clam chowder, and these scones sound like the perfect thing to eat with the chowder. Actually, the scones sound so good that you could eat them on their own for dinner!!

Megan those look great. I got excited thinking all of it was cooking light after the DB extravaganza of eggs & cream.
But this looks wonderful for Halloween.
