My husband and I simply adore seafood. Anytime, any day, for just about any meal – it’s ON. Earlier this month, he decided we take a day trip through California’s Tomales Bay and visit Hog Island Oyster Co. at their oyster farm in Marshall, CA. On the drive there, we listened to a podcast interview with the partner’s of this company, John Finger and Terry Sawyer, and discovered why their passion has made them one of the premiere producers of sustainable shellfish. We’ve devoured a plate of oysters at their other popular location in the Oxbow Market in Napa, CA., but here in Marshall, eating oysters a few steps from the very water it’s gathered is an experience that you can’t miss.
We shared two-halves of the most delicious sandwiches. The above pictured is the Mt. Tam & Ham, made with their triple-cream Mt. Tam brie. The picture below is grilled chicken, marinated peppers, and fresh mozzarella. AH-MAZE-ZING! Really. All their cheeses are made with organic milk from Straus Family Creamery.
Full happy bellies meant it was time for a drive to Bodega Bay for some fresh ocean air.
Fall is literally RIGHT around the corner and I am so excited. Big comfy sweaters, hot coco, leggings and boots. These are some old and new favorites for my must haves for the fall time. What’s your favorite things for the fall?
