Bruce stopped by this evening with a cooler full of oysters that he harvested the other day. Luckily...we still had some horseradish and mignonette so it was another good combo.
In true "Mad Men" fashion I felt it was unacceptable to have oysters without a cocktail. I grabbed this tumbler which I've always loved. During my many trips to Dan Anderson's "Mounds" kiln I would always hope that Caroline would have some tumblers stowed away in the gallery somewhere. One of the trips the planets were aligned and I brought 3 of them back with me. This one is the largest...which obviously makes the it the best for an Old Fashioned.
I did alright shucking the other night but a lesson from the master...the very tall master...never hurts. The dry clay on your arms and shirt are not necessary.
