My Last Oysters Ever

Picnic

The lovely picnic spread.

My husband and I had a very lovely picnic dinner tonight to celebrate my return after leaving him alone over the holidays. He was working in the Intensive Care Unit this past week, while I was in California celebrating with my family and friends.

This is the first weekend he’s had off in a month and we had fun going to brunch and buying oysters! We had decided to check out a Seafood specialty store and bought a dozen oysters. We then spend two days trying to find a store that carried oyster shucking knifes. Tonight we laid out or picnic and went to town.

Oysters

They were tasty.

The oysters didn't agree with me!

Sadly, the oysters gave me a rash on my face and neck (I know it’s hard to see in this light, but my cheeks are pink and puffy. I probably will have to avoid oysters, mussels, and shrimp from now on because I’m in danger of having bad reaction – the kind that swells up your throat until you soffocate! Wah. Stupid allergies! 

Sigh.
