Oyster Date Night.

We’ve had our fair share of cold winter nights this year, which means we’ve had to get creative with weekend plans and bring a few of our date-nights close to home. This weekend we had a little taste of summer with a coffee-table picnic. We had a plate of French cheeses — my sweet husband sent me a box of Murray’s Cheeses for Valentines Day (the way to my heart is Camembert, not roses!). We also had some local oysters, which I’ve always been intimidated to shuck on our own, but after some research on technique my husband mastered it in no time! The good news is the weather is warming up, so here’s hoping those newly obtained shucking skills are put to use at a real picnic soon.

    A box of Murray’s cheese is pretty much my dream come true–you’ve got yourself a good man there!

    How fun! My boyfriend and I had an at home oyster dinner for valentines! I was so intimidated by shucking them, but it ended up being pretty easy! Next time we are absolutely adding a cheese plate!
