Jeff and I went on Saturday afternoon to the annual crab feast put on by the Optimists Club - a philanthropic club of which his parents are members. This was the third one we've been to. A crab feast is a tradition in Maryland - you have a bunch of appetizers and other foods, but the main item is full steamed crabs, smothered in Old Bay - a spice specific to Maryland. I had to learn how to shell crabs - not an easy task, but I think there has been steady improvement over the years. Once again, the food was great. In addition to the crabs, there were some amazing cookies - Snickerdoodles - which I couldn't get enough of - I may have to bake some myself.
