Happy Father's Day to all Dads, past, present and future! I made breakfast for HandsomeHusband this morning and let him take a nap before he mowed the lawn in the heat. That's the kind of wife I am. *wink* This evening we took my father to dinner at the Broadway Oyster Bar in St. Louis, Missouri. We picked up another friend and then met 4 other folks at the restaurant. HH and I first dined here together after an afternoon at Mardi Gras back in 1990. They have great Cajun/Creole food. HH ordered a bucket of crawfish, a dozen oysters on the half shell, Shrimp Remoulade and some gumbo. I ate a couple of the crawfish and oysters - yummy! My main course was a delicious Crawfish Etoufée. Dad had linguini with a sweet Creole red sauce and crawfish. Several people in our party had bread pudding for dessert...but I was too stuffed for that.
The oyster shells and bottle caps are part of this mural on the outside patio.
