Oyster Crackers


 These little delicacies are a staple, and have been for years, in my grandmothers home.  She has been making them for years and sometimes, without even realizing it people will just start eating them while we are standing in the kitchen chatting about like.  Gramma always had these on hand and would always send me home with a bag when I would come over to visit.  Gramma was always good about that....she always knew what each grandchild liked and made sure she made whatever that "favorite" may be when the kids were coming over.  This is one of my favorites and there was always a fresh batch of these sitting on the counter in the same container that wore the proud label which read "From the Kitchen of Ruth Allen".  As a new generation has blessed our family they too have grown addicted to Gramma's oyster crackers.  I put a bowl on the table at any party I have and people will grab a handful, start to eat them and then realize they are so much more than just a cracker....they are delicious!!!!  Sometimes I just like to watch people eat them because it makes me think that just maybe they feel Gramma's love too like we did when she would open up the container, lower it to our level so we could reach our childish hand in there and she would say "Do you want some?"
