We graduated from pecks to bushels at our favorite seafood market this morning. Later today, the main event, is one we couldn’t miss hosting while living in the coastal South — steam, shuck, slurp — an oyster roast.

Local NC oysters are in season, and should be plump and sweet. Nothing more than lemon wedges, horseradish, hot sauce, and homemade fresh herb butter to garnish, with a couple fresh salads, warm homemade bread, and cold beers on the side.

Right now he’s pressure washing our haul (apparently that’s really a thing), but soon enough we’ll be gathered around the table, sharing warm oysters with friends. Tomorrow, r-e-l-a-x-ing + PACKERS.

Hope you have a terrific weekend planned, and don’t forget to check out the links below, including my newly unveiled HGN series: Nutrient Spotlight!

Cheers, Heather
