More good Maine stuff

We have been a Maine shellfish kick lately. Last night my husband made us oysters Rockefeller. Around 20 years ago, oyster cultivation was reintroduced into the waters around Damariscotta and from there more growers have taken up raising oysters. Yummy fresh briny oysters.

Here they are just after Neal shucked them --

And after he worked his magic on them --

P1000979

You'll notice I didn't make the mussel recipe one of the Food By Mom group -- because my kids, despite being Maine natives, just do not eat shellfish and never have. One of my failures as a parent. :::sigh:::
