How Did the Name "Anadama Bread" Come About?

"The name Anadama is thought to be a term used by an old New England Fisherman.

He grew so tired of the corn meal mush and molasses that his lazy wife served him every night for dinner that he mixed it with flour and yeast and baked it for bread, saying, "Anna, damn her.!"

Take a bite of New England's clam shack traditions with nearly 100 recipes gathered from the region's best casual seafood eateries. Here are all New England classic seafood preparations, from clam chowder to lazy man's lobster.
