Chocolate Oysters



Today we had a 1 hour chocolate tasting at work. Fabulous? Yes. Well...In theory. Except that it was at 4:00 and I was going out for happy hour oysters after work. Chocolate. Oysters. Two great tastes that do NOT taste great together!

What are happy hour oysters? Obviously they are $1 oysters that are served between 5 - 7 pm...or thereabouts. I'm not telling you where exactly because I don't want you to get in the way of my ordering! (I'm greedy like that.)

Too be honest, I thought about pretending that I had made a fabulous dinner tonight but...I can't do that. When I was walking home from the subway thinking about what the hell I was going to write about, (listening to the live Radiohead album I Might Be Wrong) in the middle of "True Love Waits," Thom Yorke's voice cracks. Subtly. In a kind of cheesy parallel, I realized that it doesn't really matter if I cook every day and have a perfect occasion to write about. Tonight's perfect occasion revolved around NOT cooking and NOT writing a recipe. So there. Just eat oysters and chocolate. And listen to Radiohead. You don't have to cook. Who cares? Except...I'll be back tomorrow. With a recipe.

Cooking everyday is tough. And trying to figure out what to make might even be tougher! I don't know if oysters would be what make my "perfect occasion," but sometimes it's ok not to cook and indulge in something simpler.

p.s. i think I know where the $1 oysters are from...

If I could shuck oysters (well, I've never tried), I'd invite you all over for oysters and Radiohead. And champagne of course!
