from my state – literally and figuratively – and other places. i'm not in florida any more, but i haven't given up the sunshine.

confession of a converted diehard

well i don’t know about oysters as an aphrodisiac, but having been introduced to the half shell in the north part of florida, i’ve always been a gulf oyster purist – if it wasn’t from apalachicola or new orleans, i didn’t want it.

last night at mccormick & schmick’s in dc … i. changed. my. mind. there were a dozen oyster varieties. not one from florida.

with not a saltine in sight, i tasted my way through a platter of six raw oysters with the vigilance of a wine connoisseur at a tasting. they were – hands down – the best oysters i have ever tasted.

a very happy heart day to all … while you’re plowing through that box of chocolates, visit hrc.org for a little loving inspiration and give them a little love, as well.

Yup! And maybe you did bring some of that sunshine. We had 14 inches of snow on Sunday and now it's all gone and warm.
