Iv got the crud, it’s not the flu (glory!) but it feels rotten. Iv has a sore throat and all the other upper respiratory yuck you can imagine and all I wanted today (it’s 40 degrees outside) was something warm and soothing. I would have settled for some hot potato soup but that just won’t do anymore, I needed a remedy, a magic feel better soup. A trip to the grocery store (I didn’t have a choice I was grocery-less) and about 30 minutes later. I am in creamy seafood chowder awe.

In a pan melt ghee over medium heat (do not burn) add pork, onion, and garlic and cook until the onions are translucent and soft (approximately 4-5 minutes).
