"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

Personal Notes:
Paula Roberts, also known to her Grandchildren as "Granny Goose" handed down this recipe to Reva, her daughter. It was never said, but it is thought that the macaroni was added to make the soup go farther. It has always been a family favorite. This soup was the favorite soup that was sold at Reva & Harold's restaurant..."Reva's Home of the Handwich" in Nashville TN.
