Carve Me Off a Piece of That Shark Fin Pie.

Last week, hubby and I went to the screening for Disney's Cinderella. I'd love to tell you about it, but I have to wait until next week. It comes out on Friday, March 13th, I'll be sure to have a review for you by then. ;)

Before the movie, we had dinner at Mitchell's Fish Market in Tampa. We had never eaten there, and with some time to waste, we decided to give it a try. It was a little pricey, but the fish was very fresh and excellently prepared. We had yummy oysters charbroiled with parmesan and garlic. A couple of years ago, I wouldn't have ordered oysters, but on a trip to New Orleans, we stumbled across an Oyster Festival, and figured why not try some. I'm so glad we did! They are delicious (when they are cooked, I'm still not eating them raw, no way no how...I will not them in a hat, I will not eat them with a cat...). These were equally delicious and the parmesan added another layer of yum!

On our server's suggestion, we decided to have the Shark Fin Pie for dessert, but only after asking "what exactly is a Shark Fin Pie?".  Don't worry, there isn't actually shark in it. It is made with a cookie crust, ice cream layers of peanut butter and fudge, and topped off with salty peanuts. It was a nice combination of salty and sweet.

The only problem, it was big enough for 4 people, and it needed a knife to cut was frozen solid! It was much like trying to chizzle an ice block with only small shavings coming off. We couldn't actually finish it because we needed to leave for the movie and just didn't have enough time. I guess with all the work it took to eat it, it probably negated all the calories thus making it a healthy option...right?

  1. Omigosh, I think I'm more excited to see Cinderella than my 6 year old! Thank you for sharing and for linking up at Wordless Wednesday!
    On Bliss Street.

    1. I can't say much, but I will say that you have reason to be excited! Cinderella is only a week away, now!

  2. I'm not sure if I want to try that or not - I'm not very adventurous, I suppose.

    1. LOL! It looks much more adventurous than it really is. Go ahead, try it. You'll like it. :)
