Last night Heath and I went to Lucedale for his brother's annual "Hogg" Party. This started 10 years ago with a small hog that Heath and I helped Seth cook. It's grown into an amazing 2 day party. Last night was awesome!

My niece Meghan works at a couple of John Currence's restaurants in Oxford. She can shuck and plate a dozen oysters in less than 2 minutes. Last night I ate oysters with crackers and cocktail sauce shucked with love by sweet Meg. By this morning, I was popping open those babies myself, slurping them down and enjoying every bite.

We had a couple of hundred oysters on the half shell this morning that Heath's brother Seth put onto his grill. This is something we'll do again. Each oyster was sprinkled with tobasco and parmesan cheese and left to smoke for about 10 minutes.

I can die now.
