Happy National Oyster Day


I could not let the day pass without wishing everyone a Happy National Oyster Day. Who knew?

Today celebrates my favorite mollusk.


Here are a few facts about oysters:

  • There are over 100 species of oysters. Traditionally, they are named after the body of water or bay in which they are grown. It’s the body of water that gives them their distinct flavors.
  • Oyster farming and cultivation can be traced back to Roman times in France and England.
  • The largest oyster-producing body of water is the Chesapeake Bay.

Thanks, Gayle for the “heads up”!

Happy Oyster Day, y’all!

  2. Who knew, but of course you would have to celebrate Oyster Day! What the next project? '-)

  3. Just seeing this post this morning, so I'm raising my oyster mug with my first cup of Community Coffee to extend the celebration! Happy belated National Oyster Day! Have a great day! xoxo

  4. I found some new oyster shell treasures yesterday at the new Antiques on the Loop in Mobile! I hope to share photos later.

    In the meantime, I'll have mine raw, baked and fried!
