the protein factory

Whenever I have oysters.....

or bluefish

or rockfish

or crabs for dinner...

I can't help but think of the quote from H. L. Mencken.....

"Baltimore lay very near the immense protein factory of Chesapeake Bay, and out of the bay it ate divinely."

The bay has been struggling for years.  It won't ever be the protein factory it once was, but let's hope it is at least on the mend.

Thanks again for the oyster recipe Baydog.

Steve, whenever I have oysters now, I often think of you!
