Our Christmas eve is always fried codfish cakes and oyster stew.
It's funny how many long lost relatives show up!

vidalia onion casserole

(I either save some vidalia's for the holiday season or sometimes I can get some sweet onions that work well also. Recently I couldn't find either, but was determined to make the dish so I used regular onions and added a dash of sugar, it came out just fine.)

Chop the onions into really thin rings, as thin as you can get. I use about 5 vidalia or 8 regular size onions. Put plenty of butter in with the onions and saute until very wilted and transparent. You will use a slotted spoon to scoop out the onions so you don't have to worry about the amount of butter you use as long as there is enough for the onions to simmer in.

In a casserole dish layer as directed below. You can put as many layers as you want just end with the crackers.

onion
grated (fresh) parmesan cheese
crushed ritz crackers

onion
grated parmesan cheese
crushed ritz crackers

ect.

ect.

finish with ritz. Bake uncovered at 350 for about 25-30 minutes until ritz just start to brown and casserole is heated through.

I have been working for the past few years to copy my boyfriend's grandmother's noodle recipe. She has tried to give the recipe to me a few times, but I know she is leaving something out, or it is easier for her to make it from sight and has trouble verbalizing the recipe. I only see her for a few hours every other year or so, but eventually I'll get it down. I almost got it this year and as soon as I get it right I'll post it. It's a noodle recipe rolled very thin that is dried with flour on it then it is simmered in turkey broth until noodles are done. It comes out like a noodle gravy that we pour on top of our mashed potatoes. Nothin like double carbs for the Holiday's :)

My in-laws always went to midnight service followed by Santa Claus, followed by a large meal that frequently ended sometime around 4:30 to 5:00 AM. It included tourtiere pie, seafood chowder, devilled eggs, and Mincemeat pie. I think there were other things, but these were the ones I truly loved.

I recently had a cousin's husband email me for a tourtiere recipe. He is compiling a few. How funny. I haven't seen him since I was a teenager! He said he'd email me with the recipes he gets from everyone in the family. How great!
