Labor Day weekend..... Oysters.....

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 

We get fresh seafood delivered every Thursday to a locally owned grocery....    S-daughter picked up some oysters and Amish butter and ended up here....   

What a good thing....

 

....Oysters on the cooker......

 

... If you have never had REAL butter, you should "splurge" once....  

This stuff has so much flavor....  I'm sure it comes from pasture grazed cows....

Then we added our hardneck garlic to the melted butter for a dipping sauce.....

AWESOME combo........

 

 

....G-daughter helping with the shucking.....

 

Zucchini chips w/sauce, salad, cukes in an Asian style sauce, garlic bread

 

The main player...  some eaten raw, some plain in the half shell,

some with lemon, some in the butter/garlic sauce keeping warm.....

 

The baguette sliced and dipped in some gar/butt sauce.... 

Topped with one of the jewels of the Pacific Northwest.....

 

Now, that my friends, was one very enjoyable Friday with the family......

Looks delicious Dave!  Makes me envious of you folks who live close enough to either coast to have regular access to fresh seafood.  That's one of the things I miss of my years living in California.

Wow I envy you and your fresh seafood. Being stuck in the middle of Michigan I do not have that here.

 

Those oysters look fantastic!

That's our favorite way to eat oysters, right out by the fire. When I lived at the coast we hosted a monthly seafood cookout. We'd pick up 6-8 dozen oysters, go out and drop crab pots and catch bottom fish, pick a couple 5 gallon buckets of mussels and have a good old time! Miss that part of the coast, but not the weather and the seasonal employment!

Looks terrific Dave!  :drool  :32:  thumb1.gif  I haven't had oysters for a few months. I may have to get some of them & some clams for next weekend - have a friend coming to visit that moved away several years ago. Great post  :beercheer:

There's a tiny little Amish store about 25 minutes from me that I can get the butter at. I don't know if I've ever seen garlic there but they have a great selection of herbs, spices & old world goodies that most people forgot ever existed. Looks like I will be heading there this week  :smile:

Don't forget the pics......  Maybe of the Amish store also....  especially of their homemade stuff.....  If you enlarged the butter picture, it is made in Wisconsin and shipped here....      Dave

 

PS.....  If you like butter...... This butter is like no other... it is SOOOOOO good...  makes you wonder why they call that cr@p butter they sell in the store....  I  just had to say that again...... it's true....

I'll see if I can snag some pics at the store - they're not really folks that are fond of pictures but I might be able to pull it off  :icon_smile:

 

& I do like real butter.
