Dirt Cheap Oysters

I hate to call them "dirt cheap" because that just makes them seem semi-invaluable, like there's something oddly wrong with them, but then again, they're assuredly delicious fresh oysters for under a dollar a pop! I'm sticking with it, dirt cheap (and delicious!) oysters.

Matt and I have this on and off "lets-not-spend-so-much-on-food" thing. We've been trying to save money (for another possible trip, but I don't want to get my hopes up) by only spending a combined $30 per night on food. Don't think we can do it, huh? Well we didn't think we could do it either when a sudden urge to slurp oysters off a half shell hit us smack in the face and the only place near Matt's with fresh oysters was the Tokyo Fish Market. That just screams $$$$!

Boy, were we pleasantly surprised to find prices like these!

So, we bought a 1/2 dozen of three different types of oysters.
That was "conservative Matt and Bridget" going grocery shopping.

We even had money left to buy skin-on pork chops at the market! Couldn't pass up that offer.

Pork chop with apples.
We used sprite to deglaze the pan and make a sauce!

O and as an added bonus: Reunited and it feels so good.

Miso Dressing!
This is what got me through college.
(Luckily, this was not included in the $30 deal)
