Just in time for your Super Bowl soiree!

A friend of ours came up two weeks ago the night before our NFL Championship game day event. He showed up with a bag (24) and a few runaway oysters. “Where the heck did you get those?” I asked, he said he stopped at our local market to pick up some beers and there was a guy selling them from the back of his truck. This was his last bag, it was half off plus he threw in all the ones that were loose.

While not my personal favorite food by any means, barbecuing them was an awesome experience. As us non-cooks got the barbecue ready, Arlene (who loves to cook) went to work on a mignonette.

Tools required: Barbecue, oyster knife, non-melting glove, forks, mignonette, Tabasco sauce, lemon wedges and a cold beer or beverage of your choice 😉

Every Exit – Dutch Flat, a ghost story

My Wife and I moved to Grass Valley in 2011.  Up until then the only thing I knew about Grass Valley was that it was two words on the signs on Interstate 80. Since the move, I have had a quest to venture off of every exit on I-80,  east of Colfax. With a little help from my wife,  kicking me out of the house for the day, I started out on my adventure.

This is the beginning of a three, or four, or more part series. I did not take photos at every exit, or from every exits area, as it just was not that interesting. I am surprised so far with what I have found.

Today’s installment I leave Colfax heading east. I only get as far as the Alta exit as I spent most of the day in Dutch Flat, (In my head I am sounding just like good ole Huell Howser).
