Don't mean to brag, but, YUM!

Homemade Clam Chowder... Seriously YuMmY! I made this myself... I just wanted to show off.
Here is the recipe if you want to try it:

Elizabeth Lane's Ultimate Clam Chowder (makes 3 quarts)

1 cup finely chopped onion

1 cup diced celery

2 cups finely diced potatoes

2 cans minced clams (tuna sized can)

3/4 cup margarine or butter

3/4 cup flour

1 quart half & half

Salt and Pepper to taste

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Juice from clams

Put veggies in sauce pan. Add clam juice and just enough water to cover. Simmer covered over medium heat until slightly tender. Meanwhile in separate pan add melted margarine and flour. Blend, cooking and stirring constantly . Add half & half. Stir until smooth and thick. Add undrained veggies, clams and vinegar, then salt and pepper. Heat thoroughly.
