Thanksgiving Shopping List

At home preparing the Thanksgiving shopping list, took a quick look in the fridge to see what we actually had – clearly we have our work cut out for us…

We will be closed this Thursday, celebrating our favorite holiday over at our friends’ Kristin & Dan. We have been put in charge of appetizers, which of course will include oysters.

But for those of you not quite ready for the adventures of at-home-shucking, there’s always oyster stuffing. Hama Hama Oyster Farm recently posted this yummy recipe:

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1 large clove garlic, diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, chopped
  • 1 pint oysters, chopped
  • 2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 to 4 cups stale French bread, broken into small pieces

In a large saucepan, saute onions, celery, parsley, garlic, and scallions in the butter until tender. Add chopped oysters. Cook until the oysters are firm, stirring frequently. Add seasonings: basil, pepper, thyme, and salt. Taste for flavor. Cover the pot and simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, and gradually stir in bread crumbs. If you like stuffing really moist, you might hold off on some of the bread. Spoon into a buttered casserole dish, sprinkle with bread crumbs, and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for half an hour.

 See you upstate!
