How Do You Like Me Now??
Oh my word! If you really look close and squint your eyes a bit you can almost see the bluebirds chirping, and swirling, around my head (along with the butterflies) to the sound of Handel’s Messiah sung by the Angels! But yes, I am waxing a bit poetic… Could not BE any happier on this cold, March day. It took everything to stop myself from diving into this plate of oysters on the half shell while Eric took the picture. Eric found out that our favorite restaurant and oyster bar was having a month -long March promotion of $1 oysters so we made our way down. Ordered 20 and felt a little embarrassed by our gluttony. I think we finished this plate in about three minutes. I love these any way they are made, but particularly when they are raw. There is really nothing like it – sweet, salty, fresh, and brimming with the brine of the sea. Most certainly would be my last meal if I were to have a choice. To those who think ‘gross’ – you should try them just one time. They may not look pretty but they are delicious. Don’t think about it, just shoot them down with one bite. My hope is that you will not regret it. Really. Just once.
Do you actually chew oysters, or just swallow them whole? If you just swallow them, you are not really tasting the oyster, just the salty fluid. Either way, I think I’ll pass….not even if I were drunk. LOL But I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Hi Deb! I am a chewer….I was just thinking that if you had never tried them before it might be manageable if you chomped once 🙂
Where were you having the oysters? Mike loves them(i only like them fried!)
Hi Jan!!! Matunuck Oyster Bar in South Kingstown…great food – especially the lobsta roll
