I've never eaten oysters in Ireland but one day I shall. The country is famous for it's shellfish and I intend to travel to the Emerald Isle and eat my way around the coast like some wandering giant crab - munch... munch... munch... I'll go, only moving sideways along the beach, never inland or seawards, until I've gobbled up every prawn, mussel, oyster, scallop, cockle, whelk and winkle I meet. The sandy beaches of Ireland will be a desert by the time I'm finished.
"Spare the little fishes." You may plea. But no, I shall eat them too. After devastating the coastline I'll move to the water. It'll be worse than a fleet of giant factory dredgers working their way up the Irish sea. I'll hoover every last morsel from there and the Atlantic too. Be warned Ireland, I'm coming for your food and I'm a very greedy man.
And boy were my oysters great - the scallops too. And lets not forget the champ. After a hard day
at work and three hours at art class this was just the ticket. Only ten more days of my blog left, then
I can have this again. Hurrah!
