Weird food

I went to a party yesterday at Mountain Road Trading Post, our local sporting goods place. It was an annual, open-house, given by proprietor George Beaumont for local customers.

I got to socialize with some of my neighbors who I know, and meet some that I don't... or didn't until now.

One cool thing about the party was that it was a sort of pot-luck for foods that you can hunt, catch, or gather.

I had three forms of oysters: deep fried... raw on the half shell... and one that was new to me, "oyster shooters", the oyster in a glass, with a dollop of cocktail sauce, and a splash of vodka. I also had trout chowder, some rabbit stew, and venison sausage. There was moose (bullwinkle, not chocolate), but it was gone by the time I got there.

Nice spread.
