… I just thank God that my turkey didn’t turn out like this….


There’s a lot to be grateful for this year. I’m looking forward to a brighter future as this year is coming to a close. So let us all eat, drink and be merry. Happy Thanksgiving from mine to yours.




August 4th was my late father’s birthday.  I meant to do a birthday/tribute post to him but I got very busy. Oh well, better late than never.

The picture above is me as a baby with my dad holding me. He was about the same age in this picture as I am today.

Everyone says I am the spitting image of my father and I’d have to agree. He passed away 13 years ago but I miss him everyday.

Happy Birthday Dad!

Izzy says “Hello” to Internet Land. She is super excited this 4th of July weekend because she gets to feast on craw dads while we feast on BBQ. Ahh, a turtle’s life. 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving to all. In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I’d like to share my oyster stuffing recipe that you can make for your loved ones for the holidays.

Now, I can’t cook worth a damn, I can only make a few dishes. But with the few dishes I can make, I’ve been told I do a good job. This is one of the few dishes that I can make (with a little help from Stove Top of course). 😉


What you’ll need:

1 stick butter

3 strips of bacon

shredded cheese

1 pt. oysters

1 box turkey flavor Stove Top stuffing



1) Melt butter in a saucepan.

2) Fry bacon in a separate pan.

3) Drain oysters; save liquid. Place liquid in a 2 cup measuring cup. Add enough water to make 2 cups.

4) Chop oysters. Leave some oysters aside for later.

5) Add oyster liquid, chopped oysters, packet and bread crumbs from stuffing box together and mix in a bowl. Drain off any excess liquid; you don’t want a watery mix.

6) Grease up or butter a medium baking /casserole dish and spoon in the oyster stuffing mix into the baking dish for the first layer.

7) For the second layer, top the oyster stuffing mix with the oysters you put aside.

8) For the third and final layer, top the oysters with a layer of oyster stuffing mix.

9) Lightly sprinkle with shredded cheese on top. Not too much cheese; its added to act as a binder.

10) Chop up the bacon bits and sprinkle on top.

11) Bake at 325 degrees for 1/2 hour. Let it sit for ten minutes after baking and it’s ready to eat.

If you’re allergic to seafood don’t make or eat this stuff. But if you’re a seafood lover like me, enjoy. And don’t say I never gave you anything.
