Oyster Stew
I made this with canned oysters and a few tweaks to the recipe. I used 4 T. butter and it was delicious, though next time I'll cut back a little more on the butter (trying to lose a few pounds lol). I diced about 1/4 c. onion and cooked it in the butter til tender. Stirred in 1 T Old Bay and cooked some more. Drained the oysters and added them to the pan with the onion. I chopped the oysters up finely with a spoon as they heated in the pan. Then stirred in 1 t. parsley (this helps disguise the green stuff in the canned oysters, lol). I stirred in whole milk - didn't really measure, but about 3 c. Heated almost to boiling, then turned down, added salt and pepper to taste, and a dash of hot sauce. Stir well and spoon into bowl. Honestly, this tasted just as good or better than the oyster stew I got from a local restaurant known for their fresh seafood. It looked beautiful too.

Boiled Fruit Cake
I hate fruit cake, but I wanted to make one for my Grandma, who loves it, so I chose this recipe since it has connections to my Irish ancestry :) I used dried fruit instead of the candied kind - dried blueberries, cranberries & cherries, along with a box of golden raisins. Also a tablespoon or two of Bourbon :) The other alteration was half water, half milk. This recipe was so good I was eating it warm, fresh from the oven. Will make this again.

Mexican Fire Rice
This got good reviews from my boys. I liked it too. The only thing I did differently was use a pkg. of cream cheese because I was out of sour cream.
