Chris and I make a serious effort to have one date night a week. We believe that new experiences help solidify our bond and keep our relationship fresh. Some weeks, we opt for date night in, like this past week. I got a serious hankering for martinis on Wednesday (tooo much Mad Men, I think) and in Lindsey land, where there are martinis, there are oysters. Its a MUST.
We registered for and recieved a sweet oyster shucker as a wedding gift and we have been dying to try it out, so we decided that Friday night would be oyster and martini night.
Santa Monica Seafood Market (if you live in LA, like seafood, and haven't gone here, run there now!) where we picked out three types of osyters, kuushi (Chris's favortie), Eastman (it was okay) and Kuto...something (my favorite!).
Classic Cocktail Sauce
Mix together in a little bowl. Yum.
Mix together in a little bowl. Double yum.
The oysters were fantastic and so were the martinis. Did I mention that we had an oyster and martini date night for under $50? It would cost $100+ had we gone out! Love that!
Do you like oysters? Do you know of any other good oyster topping sauces? Do you drink gin or vodka martinis? (I'm a Gin girl to the core).
Have a lovely Tuesday, lovelies!
