 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    3      ounces        butter
    2      cloves        garlic -- finely chopped
      1/2  medium        onion -- finely chopped
    3      stalks        celery -- finely chopped
    3      tablespoons   flour
    2      6 oz cans     clams -- chopped
    1      quart         half and half
      1/4  teaspoon      ground thyme
    1      teaspoon      salt
 
     Combine butter, garlic, onion and celery in a saucepan. Braise over
 medium-low heat until tender but not brown. Add the flour, and mix to make
 a roux. Drain clams, reserving juice.  In a separate saucepan, combine clam
 juice, half-and-half, thyme and salt. Heat until just below boiling. Add to
 roux, and cook until sauce thickens. Add clams, stirring gently to mix
 through out the sauce. Serve over noodles.
