Steamed Oysters and Fried Grub Worms...

I LOVE steamed oysters.

This past weekend I ate almost a whole peck by myself...mmmm, cooked medium, slurpy, dipped in butter and then the home-made jaws are aching just thinking about them!

T, on the other hand, does not like them at all. He said as much at the oyster bar and one of the other customers there said, "Have you tried one in a while?. T said, "No, actually I haven't". The customer suggested that T give it a try.

I slopped one in some butter and sauce and put it on his plate. He looked at me, the customers were looking at him, and, well...he ate it! Not bad, he said...and I jumed on the chance and said, "Want another one?" I knew I was pushing my luck but didn't care. He eventually ate 3, which was about all I was willing to share.

On the way back to the hotel, he said, "Cora, you should be proud of me for eating those oysters..." And I just laughed and said, "It's not like I asked you to eat fried Grub worms!"

Now, I don't care for fried Grub worms, but while in East Asia 4 years ago I was dared, by my pastor no less, to eat the local food we were served and the worms were on the menu.
I ate 2.

Somehow I don't see T going with me to Asia anytime soon...there is no way to tell what I might slop onto his plate!!! ;)

I'm with your hubby - I've only tried them once and maybe would if I was dared, but don't like them. Like all other seafood I do believe (when it is fresh) like in St. Augustine
