Yoop, I don't have any oyster recipes that you don't already have access to; but I just gotta say: Your Texas diners look & sound AWESOME!"

Just a thought here, but what about duck, stuffed with some sort of stuffing that has oysters in it? I know you don't eat many carbs, but do you eat some once in a while? If not, maybe oysters, assorted mushrooms, a little dark sesame oil, some shrimp & pecans, maybe with a handful of crumbled bacon, all mixed up & stuffed inside a tasty duck. That's all I got, maybe you'll find it useful. In the immortal words of Julia Child: "Bon appetit."
Regards, GF.

Well, we do have an extra bedroom or two! So you'd just take up one of them, and we'd cook for for you. So you can still hate me, but hate me from here.

It's wild rice! We harvest it the way the native Americans have done for hundreds of years- by canoe, by hand. It's a lot of work, but we do it every fall. I don't eat much of it at all, but Bob does and friends and guests love it!

I don't have any duck- but I do happen to have a pheasant! I think maybe we could do your idea with the pheasant, and it would be great. That's an awesome idea!

We had a late lunch today. I was hungry, so I grabbed my oyster knife and got busy!

I used a corn flour coating, with ground dried red peppers, and pan fried them in tallow from grass-fed beef.

Bob got out some soft corn tortillas, some freshly made salsa from earlier, and some sour cream and tomatoes. He finished it off with a big squeeze of lime.

We had some oyster tacos (I ate carbs for THIS meal!):

This was probably my favorite lunch in a long, long time. The flavor combo was just perfect!

That all looks so great! I love food, maybe more than beer?

I love raw oysters. Maine has some great cold water varieties. My favorite is the Glidden Point oyster from Edgecomb, ME. I prefer the big honkin size ones with lemon and tobasco, although I do love the taste of good cocktail sauce.

We are also big into whole belly clams which are like Ipswitch clams or steamers. These are often eaten with some melted butter, but my favorite is the labor of love to shuck them and deep fry with a dusting of corn flour like you did with oysters.

You could try an oyster and shrimp boudin sausage. Or oyster's Rockefeller.

This reminds me of time spent in Port St. Joe and Appalachicola. I once bought a sack of oysters from a little joint. I assumed a sack would have a few dozen for the lofty price of $17. I was astounded to see a huge burlap sack filled to near bursting. Those oysters made it back to Ohio and we ate off of them for a week.
