"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

This is a family favorite and has been for more than 50 years. My mom Donna Foster always made the best Turkey & Dressing! :)
This meal is dedicated to my father Allen Lee Foster as this was his favorite dish both for Thanksgiving & Christmas may you RIP dad! I love you always and forever! Although we spent our holidays with our grandparents my dad always insisted on mom cooking this meal for when we returned home. My father never requested much of anything except for this meal! Thanksgiving and Christmas were always a time where we spent time together preparing a feast and giving thanks for all we had. Being the oldest of 4 daughters I learned to cook early on and as we got older we all worked together preparing the Turkey & Dressing as well as countless side dishes along with all sorts of cookies, cakes, pies & cobbler. If we had time the 4 of us girls would try and play cards or simply enjoy the music we were listening to & we would sing and dance to our hearts content! As I right this all the wonderful memories coming flooding back! Those days were ever so precious and I'll always cherish those special memories!!!
