Yesterday a friend of Star invited us to eat Maryland’s famous blue crab at an old fashion crab restaurant in VA, Captain Pell’s crab house. I’ve never seen people eating crabs as a meal before, it was quite an open eye experience. We were 5 and we ordered two dozens of steam crabs.
set of utensils for each of us
we also ordered steam jumbo shrimp with spicy sauce
the crab meat is really tasty, slightly sweet and great texture. I don’t usually eat crabs because I’m lazy, but yesterday I really enjoyed the experience.
I ended up eating 2 crabs and 1/2 plate of the shrimp. My dad had 4, mom had 3 and Star had 6!!! 😯
look all the crab shells… what a mess 😉
After lunch we headed home and started the preparation for the dinner. We invited Star’s boss and his brother-in-law for a chinese dinner at home. I prepared a 9-course meal for 6!
spicy black fungus salad
spicy red sauced fresh rock fish (fresh means the fish was live when we bought it)
spicy tofu and mushroom pot
bitter melon sauteed with egg
chinese yam and pork soup
spicy minced pork sauteed with green beans
chinese style green onion pancake
and Sichuan poached sliced fish in hot chili oil, the pot in the middle of the table
It was a 4-hours work but everyone enjoyed the meal so it worth it! 🙂
I haven’t done any girly post for a while…. I have a new skin routine that I want to share with you. I was wondering if you’d like to see a post or a video about it? Let me know 🙂
