Clam Chowder

This is my entry in Lynne's book. It's been snowing these couple of days so maybe something warm in the belly (plus bread) can chase the winter blues away.
5 slices bacon - chopped
1 small onion - chopped
2 tbsp celery - chopped
1 can baby clams
1 medium size potato - diced
1 cup cream
1 cup milk
bay leaf
1/4 cup parsley - chopped

Fry bacon until golden brown then chop and set aside, 
saute onions and celery in some of the bacon oil 
add cream, milk, clam juice and bay leaf
add potatoes and simmer until potatoes are tender
add clams, parsley and bacon. salt and pepper to taste.
