Friday night was date night. My boyfriend asked me out and from the second he said, ‘how about oysters?’ That’s all I wanted.
We went out for dinner but instead ordered a bunch of appetizers. Mmm.
We did get delicious oysters that tasted like a childhood ocean swim.
We also ordered garlic shrimp, shell-on, with little sad beady eyes. They were cooked whole and drowning in garlic and oil. The taste was overwhelming. I probably would have liked them more a. If they were not looking at me, b. If the sauce wasn’t so thick, and c. If they were deshelled.
The crunch of the shell was tolerable but not tasty.
Alas, I have no photos because I left the SD card at home.
Which means we will have to have another oyster date night!
Plus, its a great excuse to wear makeup (I have discovered bronzer!) and my new grey boots!
