The Crabbiest Nite of the Year

By
Real Estate Agent
Once a year, there are certain members of my family who simply must observe the "Crabbiest Nite of the Year." In years past, we often found ourselves at the annual St. Mel's Crab Feed in Fair Oaks. However, the pandemic has shut down that event for a couple of years now.

Last night, my daughter, Jill, who had in the past usually gifted me a St. Mel's Crab Feed ticket each Christmas, hosted a group of 5 of us at her home for a really fine crab dinner instead. . .After all, The Crabbiest Nite of the Year simply must go on!

In addition to Crab, there was a wonderful Pasta, Salad, Shrimp, a Charcuterie Board, other appetizers, plus a really nice wine.

It was simply marvelous!

OMG the food all looks so good Myrl!  Yum! YUM!  Of course it was 'necessary' to bring back the CRABBIEST NIGHT OF THE YEAR FEAST!

Michael J. Perry - Unfortunately, most of my lunches don't look that good either.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - She really did.  I was shocked to see how much work she put into it.

Anna Banana Kruchten Phoenix Broker - I would have felt deprived without our Crabbiest Nite of the Year.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho - I think the last few years of pandemic makes it more important to have a feeling of normalcy.  Traditions help with that.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - Everything was so very scrumptious!  

George Souto - I decided last night that I like crab even more than lobster.  I don't know if you have ever saw that ole Darryl Hannah movie, "Spash."  There is a scene where she's at the table eating all kind of seafood.  Shells are flying everywhere.  I felt a little like that last evening.

Myrl, I commented on your Facebook post on the 'Crabbiest Nite of the Year.  Jill's feast looked not only inviting, outstanding, beautiful and delicious, it looked like fun and probably won over the normal St. Mel's doing.

Alls I can say is that must’ve been quite the feast. We still can’t go after crab around here and they don’t even know if the season is going to open Myrl Jeffcoat

Myrl, Just about 3:30AM here in Central Florida and really hungry.  Started on a healthy diet plan to stretch out over the next number of months.  I remember your 'Crabbiest Nite of the Year' FEAST.  Thought you might not mind if I went to the appetizer Cheese tray... That would be so perfect right now.  Thank you, Myrl, for sharing.
