a few times per month i will use chopped nuts as a garnish on a vegetable side or salad, but that means i consume less than 1 ounce per month.
ever watch a primate crack and eat nuts? it's a very slow, painstaking process. they don't get to buy them shelled in a giant jug from costco.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
