Holiday food

'Tis the season to eat tasty foods. I finally decided to make my corned beef today along with potatoes and cabbage. Just as I was dishing it up, Sonny, the staff member that does the hunter check station, banged on my door and invited me up to the community building for some holiday cheer. I graciously declined and told him I was just sitting down to eat.

After that tasty meal, I decided to go up to the building for some socializing. It turns out that Sonny had made Oysters Rockefeller with a great bunch of oysters he had taken from the bay. Well now, I've never eaten an oyster in my life! After a little harassment from the others, I decided to give it a try. I only ate one since I had just had a big meal, but it was quite tasty. Sonny's recipe called for a combination of cheese, bacon, oyster, spinach, and Worcestershire sauce. It was served on the half shell and made a pretty presentation.

Not much else is new for today. Rain is moving back in this evening and lasting until Thursday. I'd better go check the traps now....

Thanks for stopping by....talk to you later, Judy


  1. If you catch enough in the traps, they will make a tasty Christmas dinner.

  2. Oh Jack, what an idea! I'm thinking that maybe I'll just throw them in the freezer, and if you come to visit in January, I can share the wealth. ;)
