Hi there!!
Just popped in to see if anyone has been here lately.  Sure would be nice if you'd leave a HELLO so I know I'm not the only one who pops in.  I've got plenty more recipes if anyone's interested.

It's about time I find my way back here, huh??!!!  Won't bother with the particulars but will just say I've been distracted.    Hoping I can get with the program and start posting again.  I've got plenty more recipes I want to share.  I've also sent a link to a couple of my nieces, so hopefully they will find their way here eventually, too. 

Our winter has been pretty mild this year so can't complain tooo, tooo much about the weather.........although I do look forward to real Spring!!!  We've had some really nice days but they seem to get mixed in with some not so nice days.  The wind was horrible yesterday!!!  Wasn't quite so bad today, but still windy and lower temps sure made a body shiver!!

Hi all!!  Been a while so thought it was time for a new recipe.
I found this recipe in a book I have had for ages........Best Recipes........from the backs of Boxes, Bottle, Cans and Jars

In my family it's tradition to have oyster stew during the holiday season.  Well, it's a little late, but I had the oysters in the freezer, it was really cold the other day and I'd found this recipe so decided better late than never.  In my opinion this recipe is a winner and will definitely be used again!!

1 dozen (1 pint) shucked large sized oysters
1 cup oyster liquor
3 cups milk
1 cup heavy cream
1 slice onion
2 stalks of celery (chopped)
1 sprig parsley  (I used a tablespoon of dried parsley)
1 bay leaf
1/3 cup butter or margarine, melted
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp. Tabasco pepper sauce
Chopped chives

Drain oysters and reserve the liquor.  Dice oysters into a saucepan and add the liquor.  Slowly bring the oysters to boiling point.  Remove from heat.  Set aside.  In the same pan scald the milk and cream with the onion, celery and bay leaf.  Strain.  Blend the flour into the butter, adding the salt and Tabasco.  Slowly stir the flour mixture into the scalded milk/cream mixture and stir over low heat until thickened.  Add the oysters and cooking liquid and heat to serving temperature.  Garnish with the chives and serve.

ENJOY!! Grin

I was wondering if you were alright. One never knows these days. Glad to hear you are fine and wish the best for you and your family.

Glo's been trucking and busy lately, so this place has been very quiet lately.

Hi all!!
Well, my life has not been my own for quite some time but am hoping things will be getting back under control.  My daughter spent many months in a nursing home but has recently moved into an apartment here in town.  That's really cut down my time driving back and forth, thank Goodness!!   We are still working on getting her settled of course but things have slowed down a little at least.
Please know that I have not forgotten about this site and my friends here.  I'll try to get my act together and get some posting done.  Please be patient with me a little longer.........I also have LOTS to catch up on at home.
I think I'll go and post a recipe a family member gave me a long time ago.............hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!

LOL!!  Thanks!!  Also late with the thanks........ Grin
I actually have been here but guess I just didn't look in the right places.
As I recall my birthday sort of just came and went...........hubby took me out to dinner, though.  With the trips to the nursing home, filling out forms, time on the telephone, time waiting for return calls, etc...........my life has been mostly that!!  For the most part, I'm just trying to get this and that done so I can cross it off my list!!
