Gulf oysters are extra fat right now after our recent cold snap. José at Airline Seafood at 1841 Richmond showed me the only sack of oysters he had when I stopped in on Tuesday. He said he was expecting a fresh shipment today. The bag of oysters on hand were harvested on January 17 in Matagorda Bay, according to the bag tag. The sell-by date was January 31. The oysters come from Misho's Oyster Company.

Airline Seafood gets $36 for a 100-count bag. That's higher than in past years, but 36 cents an oyster is still a pretty good deal. They also sell shucked oysters from Misho's by the pint or quart. If you are thinking what I'm thinking, we both better call Airline Seafood at 713-526-2351 and order in advance. We are going to need a whole lot of oysters for that New Orleans Saints Victory Party on February 7.
