This weekend there were oysters. Lots of oysters. One dozen on Saturday evening, courtesy of the Fish King in Glendale. One dozen Sunday evening courtesy of the Carlsbad Aquafarm stand at the Hollywood Farmers Market.
We ate the Saturday batch (Hama Hamas and Fanny Bays) with the above wine - a killer Viogner we picked up at Rideau when we were wine tasting in the Santa Ynez Valley three weekends ago (wine tasting then Kings of Leon at the SB Bowl, are you jealous?). Sunday's Luna oysters were washed down with a few glasses of Saison Dupont.
Noah not only did all the shucking both nights, but Saturday he put together the entire gorgeous platter and made the mignonette. I love that man. He also fancies hot sauce on his lil' guys.
As you can see, we really had to force ourselves to get all 24 bivalves down. Mmmm, bivalves.
