Clam Chowder

Where there's a will, there's a way. Today is day five post op and I decided to have something a little more tasty than the mostly bland liquids I have been having. Now it could be because I was watching the food network last night and everything looked amazing, but I decided to have some clam chowder soup. Of course not being allowed yet to have anything with "bits" in it, I devised a crafty plan to blender the padoodle out of it and then strain it to remove any fibrous stuff. And guess worked! The only "problem" (actually, this makes me's the kind of problem I have always wanted) was that I couldn't eat anymore after about five tablespoonfuls. It is so crazy that one can actually feel satisfied with such small portions. I am loving this! I wish I had invented the band.

That's it for now but I do NEED HELP. If anyone knows how to get things to list in a column instead of running together where I have my goals section on my blog, I would really appreciate the help. I typed everything in a list, but when I save it, it goes into that format.

Ack - sorry - I don't have a list at the side, so I can't help you there.
Amazing though you got full on five tablespoons of food. Very nifty and exactly what you want! lol Good stuff.

I am not a fan or clam chowder but can totally identify with blending up some good soup after all those blechhhh liquids. I did the same thing with turkey chili about a week out.

I have some lobster chowder bought and intend to enjoy on Wednesday!

You might have to go into the html to make it work as a list. Google "html list code" and you might be able to fix it!

Just enter this piece of html code where you want the list to break (at the end of each line):

i put the code with the breaks below with your text. To make something bold, put before the text and after it.

good luck!

Oops, it's not showing the code, it's only showing the breaks the code I wrote created.

remove the spaces from this but put a "<" then a "br" then a close bracket ">"

For bold put "<" and "b" and ">" before the text and then "<" and "/b" and ">" after the text.

Hope that works this time!

I'd listen to Heather, she looks like she knows what she's talking about!
