A recipe from me?? Are you kidding??!!! I don't know a thing about cooking & have never cooked in my life. I have always lived with a great cook, namely my mother & my wife. This eliminated my need for ever having to learn to cook. I am, however, an expert at eating! Those that have seen me recently can attest to that!!

Christmas always brings an abundance of great food and many memories of outstanding meals. My family always celebrated Christmas Eve with the Walter side of the family & Christmas Day with the Elwell side.

Favorite memories from the Walter family included roast turkey with sweet dressing, pepper-nuts (pfeffernuesse), futchins, & anise candy.

Favorite memories from the Elwell family are turkey with sage dressing & either duck or goose with oyster dressing. What a joy it was to enter the house & take in all the delicious aromas coming from the kitchen.

When it was time to eat, there was always a contest among cousins Nord, Rich, Wayne, & myself to see who could eat the most. We piled our plates high & could have used side boards had they been available! If my recollection is correct, the amount eaten by each was pretty much the same, although, each of us thought we had probably eaten the most!

In later years, Mom started a Christmas Eve tradition that Ruth & I still observe with our family, that being chili, oyster stew, & ham/cheese sandwiches. Our children & grandchildren seem to always enjoy this & look forward to it every Christmas season.

Included are our recipes for Chili & Oyster Stew.
