We went to a crab feed last night. I have only been to these events in California so do not know if they have them other places, but they are used as fundraisers for various organizations. You buy a ticket for the event, then you are served a dinner of salad, bread, pasta and lots of boiled crab, which comes to your table in big buckets. You have to pick the crab meat out yourself, and dip it in sauce or butter. At this event, for the Rotary Club, they also had an auction, and the auctioneer was DM, the hubster's old friend from high school. It has been years since I saw DM in action, and everyone was remarking how good he was at the job. He does about 40 of these events a year. They auctioned off desserts, cakes donated by various bakeries and restaurants, and the usual price for a cake was $500 and up. The people who buy the cake usually split it with the people sitting at their table, but I was sitting at a table full of people with no disposable income, so we did not get cake for dessert. I enjoyed myself quite a bit, mainly because DM's wife was there and we had a nice chat. The host for the evening was some guy from the Channel 2 News, but I didn't recognize his name, so he must be on when I am watching something else. All this means that I actually did something social on a Saturday night. Will wonders never cease!
Today I am supposed to be roasting a chicken for Sunday Dinner, and since I haven't even started it yet, I better get busy.
