Bloody Mary Oyster Shots and Tex-Mex Valentine Empanadas

Whoa whoa WHOA. 2 posts in one day?


I won’t keep you. I know it’s Saturday morning and you have cartoons to watch and maybe a crossword puzzle to solve over 13 gallons of coffee. BUT, I just haaave to make you make these bloody Mary oyster shots. Tomorrow, right now, Valentine’s day, next week, right now, next Saturday, this Monday, right now.

Aaron and I made them not long ago and if I don’t make them soon again I’ll lose my marbles.

OR, one might say, I’d go shucking crazy? OHHHHHH. (Sorry, Mom. I had to.)

The full step-by-step is RIGHT HERE. How to clean oysters, how to shuck, how to shoot. I’m so excited for you!

AND, I have something that will help shut your little ankle biters’ pie holes for about 20 minutes so you can finish your crossword! Super simple heart-shaped empanadas stuffed with Tex-Mex awesomeness. I. know.

The sweet thing about these is that you can put in whatever filling your kids fancy.


Just look at these.

Full step-by-step RIGHT HERE!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go pick out a banded-claw crustacean so I can submerge him in boiling water and cry myself to sleep.

    I prefer to freeze crustaceans then submerge them in boiling water. Love the Bloody Mary Oyster. Can't go wrong with an aphrodisiac on Valentine's Day.

      Yes! Actually that's what our plan is. Freeze them hour? I'm still sweaty.

    CUTE! Not your everyday Valentine treat, and that's what I love about this.

    Crossing my fingers for you with the lobstah! I can eat it like the best of them but I just can't bring myself to do the killing!

    I think I'm soon gonna be the annoying ankle biter in your household that you have to appease with Tex-Mex empanadas. But I will probably tell you every time you make them that I'm all Tex, no Mex! I'm Tex-Tex. Ok, I'm done.

    Those Tex-Mex empanadas are the cutest things ever! I'm still an annoying little kid so appease me with these. :) And the oyster shots look gorgeous... but I just don't know if I'd be able to get 'em down.

    Love it all - the post, the bloody Mary oyster shots, and the empanadas. Oh, and, you, of course. That goes without saying.
