We've had several wonderful dinners, and I thought I would share some of them with you for ideas (and compliments, if you're so inclined. )

I"ve been making salsa, from fresh tomato salsa for our fajitas, to mango salsa to serve with fish and shrimp.

Here is fresh grilled Gulf shrimp with my mango salsa:

We've had some raw oysters, grilled oysters, fried oysters (no picture though!) sauteed oysters, and we're going to be doing jumbalaya with shrimp and some oysters.

It's supposed to be in the 80s tomorrow, so no oyster stew! But I'd love more ideas for some of the oysters we have left. We split a sack with a friend, and there are about 350 medium oysters left so we have roughly 150 oysters still in the shell, and about 25 shucked in their own brine in the fridge.

Here's my and my friend shucking a bunch (we ate those fried- dozens of them!):

Our share of the oysters is all in the one fridge. Here's half of my fridge, with half of the oysters of ours:

Tomorrow is their day to cook, and she tells me it's oysters.

That looks delicious! I just ate a shrimp enchilada with a black bean salsa that I thought was the bomb but your pics make me hungry again!
Prost!

Guess what? Oysters tonight, on the grill! I think some lemon and hot sauce would be extremely good on them, so that's the plan!

I had a michelada today. It was hot, and it went down very good. I don't drink them often, but in the hot sun it was great.

For the second year in a row, I am so jealous you have somewhere warm to go in the winter. Having said that....looks delicious.

Bubba: “Anyway, like I was sayin', oysta is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, oysta-kabobs, oysta creole, oysta gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple oystas, lemon oystas, coconut oystas, pepper oystas, oysta soup, oysta stew, oysta salad, oystas and potatoes, oysta burger, oysta sandwich. That- that's about it. “

No need to waste your time shucking them, if they are fresh/alive the will pop open when done. Damn I miss the days of living in the FL panhandle and getting good fresh (and cheap) oysters. They want 1.00 each or more here in Denver, and they are tasteless east coast oysters, not good salty Gulf ones

You harvested rice? That's not a usual home garden endeavor.
