This recipe makes two servings

- 2 stocks of crab meat, defrozed, shredded
- 1/4 cup of diced squid
- 1/4 cup of small shrimp,peeled and washed
-salt and pepper to taste
-water if its necessary to make it thiner

I was originally going to make cream of corn , or try to make cream of corn, only to figure out that theres no corn in my house :p So i found whatever in my house and add to the creamy base. I also ran out of butter so used vegetable fine ^^
1. Add the vegetable oil into a medium size saucer pan, gradually add flour, mix well
2. Add evaporating milk , then the chicken broth, stir well
3. Add the mash potato mix or the potatoes, stir.
4. Add all the seafood. Add water and/or evaporating milk if its too thick. Season with salt and pepper
