Made this recipe without a careful read, so was a little put out when the directions indicate the addition of half-and-half, but the ingredients don't list it! Fortunately I had it on hand, & ended up using a cup of the stuff, which worked out just fine! Except for this little problem, the chowder itself turned out great & made for a wonderfully tasty lunch! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
