Orange You Glad

Some days it just seems like the right thing to do is to eat sloppy food outside, especially since there is no way to avoid the heat and humidity. What made this even nicer is the shady garden we were in also protected us from the slight drizzle of rain - and its home to some Cardinals. Crab fest yesterday. Maryland Blue Crabs, fresh water shrimp and snow crab legs. The shrimp were big and sweet and lobster like, the blue crabs were succulent and the crab legs were just an extra layer of goodness.


We probably sat there for over two hours picking at the juicy meat while our fingers went raw and our tongues were tingling from the spicy crab boil.


This stuff is like pancakes and pasta to me, it seems like you get so full and then a little while later you just have to have a bit more.

Holy crap! Did that ever look & sound good! I'm surrounded by fresh water, but we just don't get seafood like you coastal folk!

I'm not a seafood-lover, but that stuff looks soooooo good. Way better than our local Red Lobster. Man, I wish I lived closer to the coast.

I love crab legs. Don't tell anyone, but I think they're better than lobster.
