>Clam chowder and rommegrot

>Signs of the season: My blogs are turning up in searches for “clam chowder” and “rommegrot.” Now I already knew that rommegrot is a traditional Christmas dish in Scandinavian households. But, sure enough, there is a Christmas-chowder connection in New England. Sounds absolutely delicious, too.

I’m also seeing hits for “turducken” and “virginia eggnog” and “bundt pan.” And one query for “Waring Ice Cream Parlor troubleshooting.” Oops.

But the query that’s really got me worried is the one from someone in Riverhead, New York, for “chowder raccoon.”
