"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
My mom (Cindy) went to a BBQ/Grilling contest. When she got there, they had 15 grills and ONLY men had entered the contest. She really didn't care, she knew how good this chicken was. She paid her fee, cooked the chicken and WON the contest!
