What's the odds of you getting a pearl while eating oyster...The pobability of this happening is about the same as you getting struct by lightning. Well, Jeanne and Ralph Janisch had that experience today. How Awesome! Please leave them a comment.
How many oysters does it take?
We have a new favorite restaurant! We have been going there for several years when we are traveling in the FM 1960 area.
The fish is always beautifully prepared and the prices are very competitive. We have had another favorite where the atmosphere and setting are very special. The last time we went there ,we concluded that the quality of the seafood, prices and service are actually better at Rockfish...
Today we had a reward of a different kind. We had elected to split the Seafood platter which includes a medley of shrimp, oysters and catfish. While Ralph was enjoying his oysters, he detected a piece of something foriegn. As all of us know, eating seafood requires slow and deliberate chewing. Even the most careful chefs can overlook small bones and shell pieces. It is one of those times when being a responsible consumer is important!
The cause for pause in this case was the lovely pearl in the attached photo. We have not decided just what to do with it, but it definately elevated this restaurant to the top of our favorite list!
Ralph has been enjoying oysters for years. He's eaten thousands and this is the first time to actually get a pearl!!! Many many oysters and this was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. It was also a reminder to chew carefully....
