It was lovely last weekend, the perfect day to have my mother out for a birthday dinner. I'm home pretty rarely, and the folks don't travel as well as they used to, so it's not often they get out to my place. I decided this would be a perfect time for a homey little crab boil. For those who haven't read my blog before, I did my first crab boil back in June. I've done one more since then, and figured it was about time for a third.Don't bother us, boy: we're eating. Mom and Dad hard at work on the shellfish.
I'd have to say the meal was a success. The crabs were sweet and succulent, the spot prawns firm and juicy . . . aw heck, it was all good. Mom told me she had never eaten cracked crab before! I guess it was about time, then. Spot prawns were a first for both Mom and Dad as well, but they really liked them. Still, I was the only one who sucked the heads. Hepatopancreas isn't for everyone, I guess.
Funny enough, it was the most food I've ever seen my dad eat. Not that he doesn't have a good appetite, but he kept up with me, and I've got 120 pounds on him! Glad you enjoyed yourself, Pop.
