Day 2364 - Clammy, Clammy, Clammies!
You are NOT going to believe this, but I am in love with Trader Joe's Steamer Clams.
I live in the South. Clams are not native here. If you even SEE clams in a restaurant, it is likely they are clam strips.
A week ago, I discovered Trader Joe's Steamer Clams in Garlic Butter Sauce, and I have had them THREE TIMES already.
They are teeny, tiny, baby PACIFIC clams (maybe manilas by the look of them). They are sustainably farm raised, which means they can harvest them very small!
They are already cooked, already seasoned, VERY sweet and delicious, and I would NEVER have believed a frozen clam could be so good. The one pound box is LESS THAN FIVE DOLLARS.
My life is complete- or at least my wish for clams here in the South has come true!
