half shell oysters, pesto on chestnut pasta

still too lazy to make dinner, so the above just had to suffice. but as you can see by stephanie's face, things weren't half bad. in fact last summer's pesto came at a most agreeable time, the chestnut pasta was the last of our way too short chestnut season and the oysters, well, as so often, oysters in shock of the knife scarfed from the shell, can you beat it?

once more once:
happy new year, one and all, our best for your delight!
