This is Jan’s birthday week and around this house birthday celebrations tend to get stretched out for a week. Her birthday is in the middle of a busy week, Wednesday, so her main feast will be this Sunday. I was planning on making her favorite, corn chowder with crayfish.

For weekday meals I have been known to take short cuts, like starting with a canned soup. Usually I boost the “tinned” flavor with some fresh seafood, but my daughter, Eilene, objects—“But fresh is so much better!” I have created a monster.
I usually make my seafood chowder with the less expensive bits of seafood, bay scallops, cod, small shrimp. Last weekend, I bought 10 lobster tails for Miriam’s birthday and two of my guests canceled. I had two tails that I did not use. What could I do with them to feed three people?
