Those oysters sound even better!!!!!!! How many in a half peck? I’d love to have about 3dz. on the half shell right now!
There are supposed to be about 24 in there, but this little mom and pop shop always gives some lagniappe. I bought 12 oysters at 75 cents apiece and came home with 16 of them. I haven’t counted this batch, but I ate 12 on the half shell tonight with lemon and Texas Pete, and there are many more than that left. I used to be able to polish off a whole peck by myself, but that was many years ago.
I also made a creamy pasta with angel hair, onion, garlic, and parsley, and basil, as a first course. I was channeling yours, but didn’t have great pappardelle to work with. It was good, but I’m sure not as good as yours. You also reminded me that it has been far too long since I made a quiche, so thanks.
