Ah me. Here We are. At the Oyster Festival. What to eat first?
Shall We eat an Oyster fritter from the famous Middlesex Lions Club? A bunch ‘o oysters slapped on two pieces of Wonder white bread slathered with cocktail sauce?
My friend here wants one of his own.
My friend Seco doesn’t care much about the food. He just wants to be warm and snuggly inside his peep’s sweatshirt. Cool. No…uh…warm.
Only in America do people eat things like this. Get a load of these pictures. (And We wonder why obesity is of epidemic proportions.)
No matter what We eat here, I get lots of love.
What You Learned Today:
- This past weekend was the 55th Annual Urbanna Oyster Festival.
- We went and the peeps ate oysters.
- I’m so low to the ground, I hoover up all kinds of things.
- Do you like food festivals?
About The Scottie Chronicles
Winston welcomes you to The Scottie Chronicles - a blog that began in 2009 as a voice for Stuart, a more than memorable black, brindle and white Scottish Terrier who captured hearts around the world. Stuart passed suddenly in December 2015 from cardiac hemangiosarcoma, a nasty cancer that took him far too early. If you love Scotties, please follow along. Arroooo!
The first picture looks like a bread line. I’d be on line for bread also, considering that there appears to be an all-star revue of every known artery clogger known on earth. (I’d eat them anyway-I’d go nuts in that place).
I did some hoovering on the ground for us both my friend.
I love oysters, fried oysters, oyster stew, give me oysters! I see sweet potatoe fries I could take some of them, the rest I will skip. Wish we had fried oysters around here.
Thanks for being a friend
Sweet William The Scot
You’d like the oyster fritters. And, hey, one of the peeps makes a mean oyster stew. Come see Us and We’ll make you some!
A Food Festival….we’d be there if we could. We’ll have bacon wrapped oysters…no bacon wrapped scallops….no, just hand over the bacon..
XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy
Deep fried Twinkies?? Candy Bars?? Bacon wrapped shrimp?? Woah Besty!! I did not know so many things could be deep fried 🙂 My peep’s gall bladder is contracting a she reads this…LOL
Yep. I believe anything can be deep fried. Anything. Oreos, too.
Y’all catchin’ on to the cookin’ traits of the DEEP south ….. if y’all can hold it..deep fry it!! Bacon is king and goes w/ anything! Oysters are a seasonal favorite at our place.
Mac and the clan dad like raw oysters from Apalachiola Florida (Mac only gets 2 small ones) The mom prefers baked oysters..Lucy is ‘above’ such things………
Looks like you had a great time Stewart!!!
Y’all eat oysters, too??? I haven’t had one but the peeps love them. ROFL!! “I y’all can hold it, deep fry it!” WHAT A HOOT!!! Oh me. Gotta laugh at that one…
Our mom’s mouth is watering. She LOVES oysters! Dad, not so much.
Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly
I think it’s a texture thing.
Yummy! I hope some goodies dropped your way. Of course you got lots of love, who can resist you? Oh, and your friend Seco looks just like Scruffy!
Alyssa, Mr. Fox & Scruffy
Hi y’all! Yep. I cleaned up the ground pretty well I’d say!
All looks goods to us – especially the sweet potato fries – yum
Did someone say bacon?
Oh no! Where’s the Scottish National Dish : “Deep Fried Mars Bar” ???? Big day for you Stu – got ya bags packed ‘cos we’re gonna be voting for you – it’ll be great to have a Scottie back in the White House! BOL!
LOL!!! Yep. That’d be me. Eating a deep fried Mars bar in the White House! Hope Bo doesn’t mind….
Now that’s a festival we’d like to visit!
Come on by! It’s the first weekend in November every year. See ya next time! We’ll eat oysters together!
An Oyster festival – you lucky thing you. Would love to go to one of those, although I don’t quite see where Deep Fried Candy Bars come into that 🙂
We certainly don’t get that here in South Africa.
We really don’t understand the deep fried candy things either. And PICKLES, TOO! Yuk.
Our mom, dad & Auntie Kym LOVE food festivals – they go to the Taste of Joburg each year and this year they are also attending the Taste of Christmas. We also have an oyster festival here in SA but it’s down in Knysna, which is quite a ways away from Joburg BUT mom has been there a few times, it is a beautiful little town she says.
Now, onto your food! First off, dad would DIE with all the bacon wrapped food you guys have – he is a bacon-holic. Mom says she wants to try funnel cake one day – she’s seen it on the Food Network. As for the rest…you guy’s do a lot of deep frying!
Hope you had fun!
Wally & Sammy
Yep. Lots and lots ‘o folks do lots and lots ‘d deep frying. We don’t do much, though. But, the peep DID eat one of those fried oyster fritters. She only does that once a year.
Now. A funnel cake is kind of doughy. Sprinkled with powdered sugar and kind of sweet. Everybody loves them!
…bacon wrapped shrimps…you are a lucky guy, wish I would be there ;o)
Those ARE GOOD aren’t they?
Wow, I fancy everything on the menu BOL
Even a deep fried pickle???
I want one of everything that’s wrapped in bacon, please!
OH…have you ever had a cupcake with bacon in it? Or a bacon brownie?? YUMMMMM. STU
that picture of the Deep Fried Twinkies will be a collector’s item shortly
