Oysters Three Ways

March 9th was a great day for forging oysters on the Hod Canal

It was also the day I mastered shucking oysters with the help of my great new shucking knife from Sur La Table “Toadfish” (see pict below).

1- Raw oysters within 1 hours of pulling them out of the water

2- Oyster shooters with citron vodka, garlic and cilantro (forgot to take a pict).

3- Baked oysters based on The Spruce Eats food blog

Perfect Roasted Potatoes

Cooked this last night. My Yukon Golds were no good so I used Russets. My husband thought they were gold's they were so creamy. Cooked them a lot longer, as i had them pretty close together in a small oven. Honestly the best ones I've made. I soaked my potatoes for FFs and i now I know to do it for roasted potatoes. Soaking is everything when cooked with potatoes. Also use the parchment paper!

I used rosemary instead of parsley, about 2 teaspoons finely chopped
