My Favorite Mollusk..... the Oyster

For those of you that have been following my blog, you know I enjoy all things oyster. Some followers have even suggested that I change my blog name to The Uptown Oyster (LOL!). Whether they are eaten raw on the half shell or painted in wonderful oils, I adore the organic mollusk. I was recently searching through various blogs, pinterest, and websites just the other day looking for inspiring oyster finds.

Here are some of my favorite discoveries I thought I’d share with you:
