Manhattan Clam Chowder - my Mom preferred Manhattan style over New England style, no one else in the family did (my father referred to it as fancy vegetable soup), so she'd make a batch, divide it up and freeze it so she'd have it while we had the New England style she made for us. Years later, when she was ill and living with me, I'd buy a can of Campbell's Manhattan Style Clam Chowder and surprise her with it for dinner. Funny how little things can mean so much.
