I stopped by Louisiana Foods on Wednesday and bought a sack of oysters. I went for the giant-size super selects. These were harvested a couple of days ago in Matagorda Bay, and thanks to the sandy bottom, the oysters are much cleaner than the usual Galveston Bay catch. I served some on the half shell before Thanksgiving dinner, and I also made oyster dressing.
Manager Rob Allgood said he thought he'd bought too many oysters for the holiday, and he might have some good deals on Friday (today). He guessed that a hundred-count bag of regular-size oysters might be selling for about $23, and a sack of super selects for around $36. Call Rob at 713-987-7217 and arrange to go pick up a bag or two for the weekend.
