Personal Notes:
Don't fix this recipe while 3 months pregnant. I did when expecting Todd and have not had a bite of oyster since
then! It was the sight, not the taste!

The homemakers always saw that either Jean or Ivs Lee Owsley baked this dish for our Christmas dinner. It was a favorite of many club members and their families.
