My friend Peter stopped by and gave me some fresh oysters that he had picked up around Tamales Bay. They were huge! Anyways, I think I have decided that I am just not a fan of having your own oysters. Aside from the shucking and cleaning aspect, I just can’t seem to get that great mignonette mixture just right.

The oysters were lovely however, and I had them plain, with tabasco, with horseradish, with the mignonette and all combinations in between. I also BBQ’d them and added a little garlic and parmesan cheese. I just do not seem to enjoy them as much as in a restaurant. Unfortunately I forgot to snap some pics.
