What's New

• Fixed a bug that could prevent exporting servers to newer versions of Prompt.

This bug fix is in preparation for the release of Prompt 2, a brand new Prompt app with a lot of incredible new features and a beautiful, totally updated UI.

To make up for the fact that this tiny bug fix update to Prompt 1 isn't really very exciting, here's a recipe for a delicious Old Bay Clam Chowder.

3 slices bacon
2 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
2 ribs celery, chopped (about 1 cup)
1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
3 to 4 teaspoons OLD BAY® Seasoning
1 McCormick Bay Leaves
1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
4 cans (6 1/2 ounces each) chopped clams, undrained

Cook bacon in large saucepan on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Crumble bacon; set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings in pan. Add potatoes, onion, celery, bell pepper, Old Bay Seasoning and bay leaf to pan; cook and stir 8 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Stir in milk and clams with juice. Bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; simmer 5 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Ladle chowder into soup bowls. Sprinkle with bacon.
