"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

Recipe from an IU cookbook (so you know it’s good‼️)

I have to rag on my daughter, Jennifer Stuckey Bycroft. As a brand new bride, without much experience in cooking since she was a Tom-boy, athletic and lived outside, she made this for pastor- hubby Matt. However, she was only familiar with Tapioca pudding (as we had it often at home) so she put a box of tapioca pudding in the stew! They ate it but she said it didn’t taste quite right. 😁
