If the oysters are big, chop them fairly fine before you put them in. You can add diced onion and hot sauce also. Oh, and worcestershire sauce if you have it around.

    I never realized how tough it can be to get fresh fish in land locked states until I talked to a friend who'd grown up in OK. He said the only fish they ate growing up was canned tuna and fish sticks.
    Taking the fish thing a little further. Don't eat sushi or sashimi in the middle of Illinois in the summer, especially on all you can eat discount Thursday. Just sayin'

      In Indiana up until maybe five years ago fish was square are covered in breadcrumbs. A few Christmases ago I got to go to a restaurant that printed dated menus based on what had come in that day, so we've improved a lot. That was hands down the best meal I've ever had.

        Good call on not looking for the cat. We all know it was one of those bikers out there!

        Not sure the beer would work but he would sleep more. Sadly my Arty is on Prozac for extreme, hurting himself and others, anxiety. It helps but he still has his moments. Prozac is cheaper than beer and E.R. visits.

        I hope all my meat comes healthy but dead cows. I would hate to drive by a field and see all the cows with band aids were the steaks were taken.
        they all wander around with their big cow eyes, saying 'moooo '

        he's on edge lately for sure. maybe he needs a girlfriend and a prozac

        i do indeed do dairy, and i could maybe dip it. surely raw oysters must taste better or else they wouldn't be as popular

        unless raw oysters have the same texture as raw liver. oh god that's even worse.. someone poke at a raw oyster and tell me

        i think it was still the 90s the last time i heard this song

        beautiful
        yeah you are

        Baby if you time travel back far enough you can avoid that work because the dust won't be there. You're too pretty to be working that hard.
        lol

          Raw oyster is definitely not eaten for the texture. It's that flavour of the freshest sea like you won't find anywhere else. If it doesn't taste like cool sea spray coming up off a good breeze along the bow of a sailing ship, it's not a good oyster.

          The texture is kind of like a slip seed grape. Slimy and moist with a little give.

          Oh god I need to stop talking.

              Ughhhh! I won't even eat sushi here in Louisiana. There's a fish store that has a great reputation, and for gator sausage and crawfish, they're great. But they only sell farmed salmon. When I told the guy why I wouldn't buy it, he shrugged like I was some aging hippie, then justified his choice by saying the sushi place a few blocks away gets their salmon from him. He single handedly ruined sushi for me here. I'll wait 'til I visit one of the left or right coasts.

              Raw oysters OTOH are straight from our Gulf, so those are very much a go when I'm wandering around the Quarter. Bloodorchid, raw is a totally different animal from canned. They smell like ocean air and are light in flavor. And with any luck at all, one is chugging them along side a great beer.

              • paprika and letting the skin/fat caramelize a bit makes for some purty looking wings

                i think there have been 2 whole cramps this week, thank you lady time fairy

                i batch cooked some again. bacon wrapped chicken tenders with the wings. i had tenders with some tiny, twee gherkins for lunch and was meh. around supper i was craving them even though i was still meh about the bacon

                i had several tabs of recipe sites up and got overwhelmed so food hunting is postponed

                i get overwhelmed a lot sometimes. walls of text, etc

                i've been juicy juicing my water to get more down and after a few days the bane tastes super thick and ug, so that's pretty cool i guess

                i'm looking at nail polish sets for a relative's christmas gift and i don't know if i want to buy it because the quality and reviews are high or if the colors all look gorgeous to me. i've seen relative wear purples, browns, the occasional bright color, but this is teal & purple & glitter along with a neutral. it's so pretty and bright. if i buy it you better wear it all forever

                i'll steal it back if you don't

                i've done very minimal impulse, buy things to make me happy, shopping so there is a surplus of free cash. i like the extra bump. feels secure, i like secure.

                and on the plus side i took a hydro and can move now. on the downside i'm split between spending all my free money and not buying any gifts at all ever, because i'm tired and somewhat emotional, because i'm tired and sleep hasn't been that great for several days

                and i suck at gift giving because if i'm buying something girly for someone else i don't want to buy it unless i buy me something too. i think i literally have the same sense of entitlement as an 8 year old boy

                but still no cramps. wheeeee

                beautiful
                yeah you are

                  That's not necessarily a bad thing. I used to Christmas shop something like this: this is for Dad, this is for me, this is for Gran'ma, this is for me, and so on.

                  Your carmelized wings sound awesome.

                  • I did a little Christmas stocking stuffer shopping yesterday and found lots of stuff I wanted, not so much stuff for others. I bought some things I wanted for hubby's stocking that I may give him to put in mine. Stockings are a huge hing in his family.

                    I hope you got some sleep. And yeah on little cramping!!!

                            • i'm here! i think!

                              i passed out yesterday afternoon, slept til last night, wobbled around with the dogs a bit then passed back out til this morning. i feel like a human bean again

                              'one for you, two for mee.. one for you, threeeeee for me...' is the perfect ratio i think

                              i found stuff called greek gods kefir cheese, and since i try new things i picked a thingy up. it tastes like a mouthful of straight up citric acid. eaten with some honey on top, it changes to 'what is this curiously now-edible magic?'.

                              cookie has been escaping repeatedly the last few days. i went over all of his usual crawl spots, they were all still blocked. i finally decided he learned to jump over the sagging spot that a giant neighbor dog wallowed over to say hi made. it's been making me nervous because he's a small dog, he's a stealable dog, he has zero camo from the hawks flying over and sitting watch in the trees and when the hawks sit in the trees you realize how big they are. last night he got loose right after i let him out and he took his sweet time coming to me when i was yelling for him. i finally lost my temper when he ran in from the direction the coyotes hunt and yelled at him to go to bed

                              one of my sibling's small dogs, that i was very attached to, got torn apart when it snuck out one night. cookie pays for that memory with my over protective yelling

                              but i let them out for their early morning bark and pee this morning and the furry twerp didn't see i was still out there so i found his escape spot. the little bastard is clever. he saw on a sagging spot that he could squeeze through the wire, it's rabbit wire so the squares are smaller at the bottom and larger at the top. i saw him nosing around it and went 'ha! found it! wait, no.. NO! COOKIE NO!'

                              i smugly reinforced the whole thing with extra spikes, because i am marginally smarter than a 12 lb dog

                                But I guess it's only a matter of time now before you post something gross and send me screaming out of your journal.

                                Although after watching 20 cyst evacuations on YouTube, I don't know what could be worse.
