Sunday Bloody Mary Sunday

Sunday, June 12, 2011

And what's the perfect accompaniment to a bloody mary...oysters, of course. 

A couple weeks ago, while walking around our local farmer's market, we found a local fishmonger who brings in a variety of oysters to be consumed either on the spot as market goers rush around you or taken home and enjoyed at leisure.  After partaking in a half dozen of their best selection, we decided to have our own oyster party.  For me, enjoying a dozen or so cold oysters dressed with lemon juice and Tabasco is a perfect way to spend a lazy warm Sunday afternoon.  And we can't forget the Bloody Marys, especially since the BF has been perfecting the art of constructing one. 

Here's what our spread looked like:

Oysters were just the beginning.  Grilled shrimp, avocado salsa and summer succotash made it complete.     

The shrimp are done, just waiting on the green onions

Looks good, doesn't it?
